Ezra 9,10:

9:2 – Although this command is not as clear-cut in those days, it is still something that needs to be followed. We are God’s chosen people and He calls us to be a ‘Holy People’. Because of this we must separate ourselves from worldly affairs. It doesn’t mean separate completely, that would defeat the whole purpose of us being here on earth. We are here to reach the lost, by sharing the love of Jesus; but we must not compromise our righteousness, or lower our standards that will eventually lead us into sin, drawing us farther and farther out of God’s presence.

9:10-15 – This passage shows the importance of following ALL God’s commands and how we need to proceed with humble repentance when we slip.

10:10-14 – Same thing here, when we stumble because we all are sinners and all fall short of God glorious standards; we must know that our amazing God is filled with unfailing love and forgiveness towards humble repentance. We must be prepared to choose God’s ways over our sinful ways. These men valued their relationship with God over any earthly relationship. Thats pretty intense. We need to have this type of love and fear of God Almighty. Thats why the best thing to do is follow God’s commands, then we don’t have difficult decisions to make with tough consequences.

Psalm 131:

Dynamite little Psalm. Humbleness seems to be the root of this righteousness. With a humble heart we remain focused on Christ, and remain content in all His ways.

Luke 21:

Verses 1-3 is pretty convicting. I’m sure most of us can’t give on this level yet. To truly be able to give away all that you have…wow! The devil has done a pretty good job at placing so many financial distractions in our lives. We must truly seek God with persistence and whole-heartedness in order for Him to help us be the givers we need to be.

The rest of this chapter was the powerful description of the end times. It seems that most of the passage is describing the tribulation period. In verse 36 the NLT uses the word ‘horrors’. Thats a pretty intense word to describe situations here on earth. Verses 34-36 seem to be describing the rapture, or the state of preparedness all believers must be in to prepare for the rapture. Pretty intense, to be caught unaware and have to live through and face a world of horrors, especially when you thought you were all good. As verse 33 says, God’s words will never disappear. This things will happen, many will be caught unaware, and many will face horrific times. We must do everything we can to live and spread God’s wonderful love and truth.
