Nov 30: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?

11-30-09:

Just imagine to one day actually see the radiance of the glory of the Lord—will we be able to describe it as easily as Ezekiel? Ezekiel 1:28

The perfect model of humble faithfulness to God’s calling is sprinting forward in what is asked by God—not continuing just because of the perceived outcome we think should happen. Ezekiel 2:3-8

Faithfulness is more than just listening, it’s also praying for a shield surface on your head to deflect the haters. Ezekiel 3:8-9

Whether people listen or not, our job is to be faithful in relation to and relationship with; not be faithful to the outcomes we think are right. Ezekiel 3:10-11

Faithfulness = “whether they listen or fail to listen”. Are we to be outcome driven or faithful servants? Which are you? Ezekiel 2-3

Much love.
