Wanted: Representatives

Read Ezekiel 22:1 through 23:49

Personnel managers spend a great deal of time trying to find good people to work for their company. They know that good workers are a key factor in the success of the business. Conversely, poor workers can mean the end of a business.

God sought a priest or a leader in Israel who would faithfully represent Him to the nation. He wanted to spare the people the judgment that would come—but He could find no such person.

I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none (Ezekiel 22:30).

God still seeks people to represent Him to the world. Every day people yearn for an answer to problems they face in life. These people need to know that Jesus can fill the emptiness in their lives. When they meet someone who has accepted Christ, they will see that they too can find the abundant life that He brings.

Challenge for Today:

Determine today to be someone God can depend on to represent Him to the world.
