Ezekiel 33-36: Ezekiel the Watchman
Up until now, we’ve seen Ezekiel the Prophet.
Today, we see Ezekiel the Watchman—Israel's Watchman.
The first thing I notice in this passage is that the Lord calls Israel “your people” instead of My people. “The Word of the Lord came to me: ‘Son of man, speak to your people…’” (33:1). When the Lord speaks to Ezekiel and calls Israel “your people,” this gives Ezekiel a sense of responsibility for these people. The responsibility he has for them, we will also read, is to be their watchman.
Being a watchman for the house of Israel was a pretty serious business!
But aren’t we also watchmen today? Aren’t we watchmen for the people God brings across our paths every day? We are, and the business is just as serious! We are armed with the Gospel, the Good News of Jesus Christ. We know the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Let’s be the watchmen, or watchwomen, that God has called us to be in our time, just as Ezekiel was to the house of Israel in his time.
Being a watchman (or watchwomen) is serious business! How are you going about that business in your everyday life today?
