God's Gift of Government
Topic: Faith Passage: Ezekiel 33:7–33:9, Romans 13:1–13:10, Matthew 1811820
Today we hear in Ezekiel 33 God's call to proclaim His Word faithfully, especially His Law to "warn the wicked". We hear in Matthew 18 Jesus stress that everyone is called to share His saving Gospel - with children, with those gone astray, with the person who sins against you. We pray today, in terms we hear from Romans 13, that our earthly life may be ordered that the love of God may thus be fulfilled in us . . . and thus through us.
