But For My Name
“Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws." -Ezekiel 36:22,25-27
God, by His grace, reaches out to us and saves us from ourselves because HE is good! Even when we turn our backs on Him, when we as Christians give Him a bad name and poorly reflect Him to the world, our Lord still comes through for us. It is not by our strength, but by our Father's goodness that we are saved. May we always be thankful for His grace!
