Today’s QT reminds me of the difference between the times before and after Jesus paid the price for the sin. In the times of today’s QT, during Ezekiel’s time, the way to salvation was to be righteous, but it was too hard as no one could be righteous enough. So, Jesus opened a new way to salvation through faith, and faith alone, and this faith in turn leads the wicked people toward living a more righteous life, but not required for salvation.
I’m so thankful for this price having been paid for me. It’s something I cannot ever repay. I’m just called to pass on and share the grace I have been given to others. This is hard at times because as a human being, there is always going to be some level of self-protection in place from being abused by others. This fine line cannot be set by any observable standards I can figure out. It differs time to time, situation by situation, and so it must be relied on the Holy Sprit, as with everything else. And to be able to rely on the Holy Spirit, I must be awake, and ask for it always, in anything and everything I do. I just don’t have enough information to make the right call on my own. I can never have enough information to make the right call on my own. This is true in all aspect of my life, both social and business. It’s why it’s so important to be awake.
