Ezekiel 16: I am the Truth

Trinity Sunday, May 27, 2018

It is best to read this prophecy with a commentary since some of the history and references can be confusing; but the most striking element in chapter 16 is the fact the revelation that all the actions we believe we do in the dark will come eventually come to the light. All is ultimately revealed.

Here we see how Israel turns away from Yahweh to play the harlot with pagan nations. Worse than a prostitute, she does not take payment, but gives herself freely to one or to all. Still, God pardons her, as God pardons us.

I will honor the covenant I made with you when you were young, and I will make a covenant with you that will last forever.

We ask for forgiveness as we reveal our truth to a God who already knows it.

We make reparations for damages we complete to the Spirit who already heals us.

We ask for mercy that our acts of omission may be made whole through the goodness of the Son who is the Shepherd, The Way, the Vine to our branches, the Alpha and Omega, the Resurrection and the Truth. Let us today and all days remain in this certainty. For this is the truth we find in our covenant with God.

I will honor the covenant I made with you when you were young, and I will make a covenant with you that will last forever.
