“But when the people of the land shall come before the LORD in the solemn feasts, he that entereth in by the way of the north gate to worship shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that entereth by the way of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth over against it” (Ezekiel 46:9).
Today’s Morsel: One of the things about church is that you should never leave out the same way that you came in. You should always leave a different way. Something said from the word of God should cause you to consider where you are in your relationship with God, and you should leave changed. If you have to go to the altar at the end of every service to rid yourself of sin, something isn’t right. Yes, the altar should help you leave a different way, but at the end of the service, you should leave ready to do more for the kingdom and tell others about Jesus. You should not be in a continual struggle with sins. The Lord told Ezekiel if they came in by the north to leave by the south. And if they came in by the south to leave by the north. Whatever you do, get in the habit of leaving every service different way, closer to Jesus.
Sing: I know I’m saved and I’m so glad about, I found the joy my spirit craved. It is so real that I could never doubt it, O’ praise the Lord I’m saved.
Thought For Today: Leave different than you came.
