S.A. Fix – April 9, 2017 (Morning Worship)
Although we are used to thinking of God’s salvation as all about us (being saved from our sin and its consequences), in Ezekiel 36:16-38 God shows us it’s ultimately all about him. Pausing for a moment from his grand visions of the glorious new creation which God’s people await, Ezekiel here shows us the ultimate purposes of his re-creation. It is all about our Triune God and his glory, in solving his dilemma brought on by his sinful people, satisfying his chief end of glorifying his name, and succeeding in his design of building a kingdom of perfect peace to be with his people forever. All this is ultimately done by our High Priest Jesus Christ who by the Holy Spirit washes away our sins and gives us a new heart through faith in him.
