Light · The Journey · the Word

The Journey Readings: Week 110… and His Word is light…

“Son of man, have you seen what the elders
of the house of Israel are doing in the dark,
each in his room of pictures? For they say,
‘The Lord does not see us, 
the Lord has forsaken the land.'”
Ezekiel 8:12 ESV
God took Ezekiel by the hair…
carried him from Babylonia…
back to Jerusalem…
where He showed Ezekiel…
the depth of the sin of the Jewish leaders…
The leaders of Jerusalem…
had left behind God’s Word… long ago…
misplaced it… ignored it… traded it for lies…
Without God’s Word…
we end up in the dark…
doing abominable things…
in hidden places…
The leaders left behind in the suffering city of God…
believed He had abandoned them…
forsaken them…
They believed they were hidden from His sight…
Had they known His Word…
been familiar with His law…
as they were called to be…
they would recognize… 
the consequences of disobedience…
They would see His hand…
in all their troubles…
Without His Word…
we know only darkness…
we run to the dark…
A hymn in worship…
reminds what we need…
Send forth Your Word… Lord…
Let there be light…
— Shine Jesus Shine
His Word brings light…
where before there was only darkness…
His Word shines on the Way…
where before we stumbled and fell…
His Word is light…
it’s what we need to see…
to find our way…
Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
Psalm 119:105 ESV
Without it… we are lost… in the dark…
