He Breathed Life Into Us
Why is Life so important and why should we honor God with it.
In Ezekiel 16:20-21 it says “‘And you took your sons and daughters whom you bore to me and sacrificed them as food to the idols. Was your prostitution not enough? You slaughtered my children and sacrificed them to the idols.
God's people had turned from Him and were sacrificing their children to other gods. God was angered that the people were taking the gifts that He had blessed them with and was using it to worship idols. They themselves used their bodies to engage in sexual activity as worship and sacrificed their children to these idols.
What are we doing with what the Lord has blessed us with? Are we honoring God with it or throwing it away to satisfy our self or others?
36 The Lord said to me: “Son of man, will you judge Oholah and Oholibah? Declare to them their abominations. 37 For they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands. With their idols, they have committed adultery, and they have even offered up[a] to them for food the children whom they had borne to me. 38 Moreover, this they have done to me: they have defiled my sanctuary on the same day and profaned my Sabbaths. 39 For when they had slaughtered their children in sacrifice to their idols, on the same day they came into my sanctuary to profane it. And behold, this is what they did in my house.
They even went into God's house and did it there. They used a place that was meant to bring God glory through worship and defiled it by worshiping idols there.
What is our reason for going to church, is it for self-gain, habit or to worship the only one true God to seek to get closer to him?
13 For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.[a]
Wonderful are your works;
