The Lord Wants Us To Be Renewed

The Lord taught His people many times by severe punishment whenever they turned away from the law of God and became a degraded life. Actually, this is God’s love for His people in order to realize what they have to do as people of God. Once they fell into sin severely, the Lord had sent them far away among nations and scattered them among the countries. However, God never forsakes His people after they confess that they have fallen, and repent them, the Lord always secures them from such suffering. Here in the bible the book of Ezekiel 11:19-20: ‘Then I will give them one heart (undivided heart), and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgment and do them: and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.’  

The Lord proclaimed to Israel those who were captive of Babylon to recover. He said that I will make you a new one. And although your heart was stony, I will make it soft.” This is the very abundant grace of God. Even though we were sinners, the Lord gives a chance to return to Him through Jesus Christ. This is based on God’s covenant for His people, which never forsake His people and does not want to lose the relationship. We should be in the right relationship with God. The Bible says that because Israel has broken the relationship of God, they were captive to Babylon and their country was destroyed by fire. Their family was killed. 

Even though we were sinners, the Lord gives a chance to return to Him through Jesus Christ.

If your spirit is not bound strongly in the relationship with God, you may lose the power of life as a Child of God. So, if we are unclean before God, we immediately confess our sins. If we do not confess our iniquities, this is against God, so you may lose the fellowship with God. And the Lord does not want His people to fall in distress for a long time, but he wants to restore the relationship rightly soon. But, one thing that we should know is that we must be clean before God. Before the Lord declared this recovery of Israel, He had ordered them to bring out all of the detestable things in their life. This is a precondition to coming back to God to us, to restore the broken relationship. Brothers and sisters of seafarers let us purify our life wherever we stay. This is God’s wants for us. Bon voyage!
