This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says:
’In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it.’
These words are reiterated by the prophet Ezekiel: Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die…? (Ezek.33:11)
True and lasting peace is found when we turn away from self and sin and rest in the Word of God. Jesus said, ‘I will give you rest.’ (Mat.11:28)
How sad that so many reject his overtures of love.
