What the Watchman Does (Ezekiel 33)


By Benjamin H. Liles

          I know I've been over this probably a few times before, yet I believe it bears repeating seen as Ezekiel reports on this as well. James writes in his letter to the church, "My dearly loved brothers, understand this: Everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger...But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves...Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world" (James 1:19-27, Holman Christian Standard, italics for emphasis).

By Benjamin H. Liles

          My wife, Tanya, and I were having a good discussion about being self-sacrificing. To me it's an interesting topic. Paul wrote to the believers in Rome, "Love must be sincere.

By Benjamin H. Liles

          While in the last chapter of Ezekiel I was sating that God rather exalts people, He truly doesn't like the pride of those who stand against Him. Pride, in His eyes, is clearly a sin as it removes him off the throne of mankind's heart. He wants us humble, and seeking Him as He wants His name, His glory known.
