“And he said to me, ‘Son of man, eat whatever you find here. Eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.’ So I opened my mouth, and he gave me this scroll to eat. And he said to me, ‘Son of man, feed your belly with this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it.’ Then I ate it, and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey.

And he said to me, ‘Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with my words to them. For you are not sent to a people of foreign speech and a hard language, but to the house of Israel – not to many peoples of foreign speech and a hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, if I sent you to such, they would listen to you. But the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, for they are not willing to listen to me: because all the house of Israel have a hard forehead and a stubborn heart. Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces, and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. Like emery harder than flint have I made your forehead. Fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house. Moreover, he said to me, ‘Son of man, all my words that I shall speak to you receive in your heart, and hear with your ears. And go to the exiles, to your people, and speak to them and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,’ whether they hear or refuse to hear.”

Ezekiel 3: 1-11
Wow…
There are a few things I get out of this passage:
1. Whether you’re called to foreign missions or missions right next door, both are equally important and we’re all called to go. Not just pastors, pastors wives, missionaries, etc. Lay people are to go as well. It is a command of God…
2. Does this not sound like America? America is not a Christian nation. As a majority, this nation has turned its back on God. God is of no importance, therefore they will not be willing to listen to us…
3. But, look at verse 11, “And go to the exiles, to your people, and speak to them and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, whether they hear or refuse to hear.‘” We are to proclaim the Gospel, even if it falls on deaf ears. Is that easy? No! Is it a command? Yes!
If you are a Christian, whether He calls you to the foreign mission field or to the mission field in your back yard, you are called by the Most High God to proclaim the Gospel…whether they hear or refuse to hear…
But, fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house. The Lord is your Strength!

    I find it so hard to share the Gospel, I guess I need to make that a goal this year, to be more courageous about sharing the Truth of the Gospel with others. Thank you for sharing and linking up today!
