Fooling Around! Warning Strong language


Church Family,

This is a graphic text. The wording is strong.

I once read that the biggest problem that non-believers have is not that they don’t believe in God. It’s that they see how other believers act and find the “believers” to be unbelievable. It is one of the chief complaints against the church. The people say one thing and do another. We often question God about it. Read how God feels about our sinfulness. (Please note that the women here refers to all of Israel, both men and women. God considers His people to be joined to Him like a wife(believers) and husband(Christ). God is not singling out just women)

Ezekiel 16:30-34 “How sick is your heart, declares the Lord GOD, because you did all these things, the deeds of a brazen prostitute,31building your vaulted chamber at the head of every street, and making your lofty place in every square. Yet you were not like a prostitute, because you scorned payment. 32Adulterous wife, who receives strangers instead of her husband!33Men give gifts to all prostitutes, but you gave your gifts to all your lovers, bribing them to come to you from every side with your whorings. 34So you were different from other women in your whorings. No one solicited you to play the whore, and you gave payment, while no payment was given to you; therefore you were different.

When God’s people sin, they are worse than a prostitute. We actually give away ourselves, holiness, testimony, etc. God is saying that at least a prostitute is smart enough to get paid for their services. Our sin causes us to lose every way possible. There is no benefit to it. (God is not approving of prostitution)

Praise be to God that He is faithful even when we aren't.

Reminders:

  1. Church this Sunday! Please pray for the service, Sunday school, teachers, and leaders. Bring your worship with you.
  2. Fundraisers, bring your money and delivery information this Sunday. I realize that some will pay when they get the food. You can still sell next week, but we need to map out our delivery strategy. By last count we need to sell about 250 more plates to reach our goal.
  3. Pray for opportunities to share your faith today. Be strong and courageous and boldly tell others about Him.

Love, Serve, Go
