“Salvation In Two Steps” (Ezekiel 20: 43 – 44) by Carley Evans

Salvation in two straightforward steps here in Ezekiel: the first step is “and you shall loathe yourself for all the evils that you have committed;” and the second step is “and you shall know that I Am the Lord, when I deal with you for My Name’s sake, not according to your evil ways, nor according to your corrupt deeds.”God says, “As a pleasing aroma I will accept you, when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered. And I will manifest My Holiness among you in the sight of the nations. And you shall know that I Am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 20: 41 – 42)

“[You] shall not defile [yourselves] anymore with [your] idols and [your] detestable things, or with any of [your] transgressions. But I will save [you] from all [your] back-slidings in which [you] have sinned, and will cleanse [you]; and [you] shall be My People, and I will be [your] God. My Servant, David shall be King over [you], and [you] shall all have One Shepherd . [You] shall walk in My rules and shall be careful to obey My statutes…and David, My Servant shall be [your] Prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with [you]. It shall be an everlasting covenant with [you].” (Ezekiel 37: 23 – 24, 26)

Recognize, accept your core unworthiness — your sin. Then, recognize, accept God’s willingness and ability to forgive and to make you His own.
