Sermon text: Ezekiel 33:7-11
7As for you, son of man, I have appointed you to be a watchman
for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my
mouth, you are to warn them from me.
8When I say to a wicked man, “Wicked man, you shall surely
die,” if you do not speak to warn the wicked man against his
way, that wicked man will die because of his guilt, but I will also
hold you responsible for his blood.
9But if you do warn the wicked man to turn from his way, and
he does not turn from his way, he will die because of his guilt,
but you will have saved your life.
10So you, son of man, say this to the house of Israel. This is
what you are saying, “Certainly our rebellions and our transgressions
weigh upon us, and because of them we are rotting away. How then can we live?”
11Say to them, “As surely as I live, declares the Lord God,
I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Instead I take
pleasure if the wicked turn from their way and live .
Turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why should you
die, O house of Israel?”
