Hebrews 2. Do not neglect so great a salvation. God cannot die, He is eternal, but He had to be made a little bit lower than the angels, in the form of man, so that he could die. And so Jesus had to endure sufferings, even taste death for our redemption. He was in every way tempted just like we are, and emphasizes with us in our temptations and trials. Praise God!
Ezekiel 14. Idolatry was to be punished, judgment on the Israelis’ unfaithfulness was inescapable.
Ezekiel 15. The word of the LORD: “Jerusalem is a useless vine.”
Ezekiel 16. In spite of everything God still loved Jerusalem and its harlotry, Adultery and its lovers abuse of her. This was more wicked than what happened in Samaria and Sodom.
Psalm 101, of David. A song of praise and a vow that reads like a new year’s resolution.
