Word Wednesday .::21

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron.

To participate, do your own post on your blog about your Word for the week, and link it to the bottom of my post every week by using the application provided below. Always leave me a comment, so I know you dropped by, and link back to my post from yours. Thanks for participating.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Ezekiel 16:22 ESV

"And in all your abominations and your whorings you did not remember the days of your youth, when you were naked and bare, wallowing in your blood."

Prostitute/whore/whoring seems to be the dominant theme of chapter 16. This is a Word through Ezekiel from God to Jerusalem, and it's pretty strong. As Christians, we definitely don't want to lose the wonder of the cross, and how God has saved us. For me, it's also about the remembrance of God's current grace in my life. Not if I mess up, but when I mess up, He keeps forgiving. The Psalms talk about worshiping the Lord with remembrance of His holiness. My Pastor said, this past week, that thinking people are thankful people. When we think and remember, we will be thankful for what God has done and what He is doing.

What's your Word?
