You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious.

Ezekiel 2:7

Ezekiel, in his day, had a specific calling to speak to a clearly rebellious people. But sometimes even for those who speak the word of the Lord today – whether in church teaching sessions, Bible study groups, camps, Sunday school or other youth work settings – we may sometimes wonder whether anyone’s actually listening to the point of it having an impact for change on them! However, faithfully speaking the word of the Lord as we have opportunity and responsibility, is in fact an end in itself whether or not they listen. Indeed, sometimes, the impact on the hearers is not seen for many years anyway. Keep on speaking then!
