Translating God's Word for a new generation
In a world of security cameras and alarm systems, there are millions of ways to keep your property secure from intruders who would seek to cause trouble. Lest we think that we are protected only by human inventions, this Sunday in worship we are reminded of what the Lord God said to Ezekiel: “Son of man, I have made a watchman for the house of Israel” (Ezekiel 33:7). The entire house of God, which has been watched over by the prophets of old, is now under the authority and care of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. In grace, He has appointed the church to proclaim the Good News to the ends of the earth. Jesus, your ultimate watchman, guards and protects you from the threats of the evil thief who “comes only to steal and kill and destroy” (John 10:10). Place yourself under the watchful eye and merciful care of this watchman today! Watch Him, hear Him, and receive Him as He serves you in His Father’s house.
