A Call For Repentance
August 16, 2015
Bible Basis: Ezekiel 18:1-13, 31-32
Bible Truth: Ezekiel advises confession and, along with Proverbs, exhorts the people to do the right thing and thereby build a just community.
Memory Verse: "Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit” (from Ezekiel 18: 30-31).
Lesson Aim: That we will review the message of Ezekiel that God holds each person responsible for his or own actions; feel accountability for personal acts of omission that damage the community; and pray for discernment in how to amend our ways and build communities of justice.
