Is your soul searching for peace? For a renewal? A deeper walk with the Lord? Have you gradually lost the fervor of following Christ and given way to complacency and life as usual? Ezra pointed the way to revival.
“This Ezra went up from Babylon; and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses, which the LORD God of Israel had given…” Ezra 7:6a.
And as we saw in previous posts of Ezra, he set his heart to this law, to know it, to do it, and to teach it. This law is where we find Christ in the book of Ezra and there we find revival.
“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” Matthew 5:17,18.
Walk with me in my next post as we look at how to bring revival to a thirsty soul, as we look at Christ in the book of Ezra.
For thought until the next time:
What image/s come to mind when you think of the law of Moses or law of God? Is it revival or judgment?
Is the law relevant to our lives in the age of grace? If so, how? If not, why?
What do you think?
