KEY VERSEEzekiel 7:27 (God to Ezekiel)
The king and the prince will stand helpless, weeping in despair, and the people’s hands will tremble with fear. I will bring on them the evil they have done to others, and they will receive the punishment they so richly deserve. Then they will know that I am the Lord.

My love and mercy extend to you. I want you and each person to turn to me and trust me with your lives. I am what each of you searches for and desires. I know it’s tempting to think there is a bigger or better option out there, but I am everything you want and need. And my arms are open wide to receive you. Stop settling for something or someone that is just satisfactory when you have complete joy, fulfillment, and purpose with me.

The choice is yours. You must know, however, that any other option will only satisfy briefly. In the end, I will judge the world, and all will perish. No god or idol will be able to protect you. If you do not reject false idols and turn to me, I will have no option except to judge you according to your merit, and you will not do well. No one is perfect except Jesus. He can and will set you free if you turn to me.

Receive God’s grace today. Recognize your tendency to live under the law. Instead, enjoy freedom through God’s grace. Stop working hard to be good and ask Jesus to take over all you are trying to do independently.
