Symbols can raise awareness to acute levels. This is evident in these chapters. Ezekiel is deeply conscious of the sins of the people for whom he intercedes.
You will read about the power of God and the divine outrage at the people and their high places in the mountains where they worship idols. That any person, place, or thing be more important than the Lord is to commit idolatry. God has made us to adore and worship the Lord alone.
Great pain occurs when life is lived without God as center. Is there anything of this kind of pain in your life? What images come to you in prayer? Jesus took all your pain and anguish so that you would not have to bear them any longer. Give all to God; adore and worship God alone.
What are these?
Being part of the world’s sin
Sorrow for the part I’ve played
Repentance and forgiveness
You wanting our salvation
