God loves us enough that He never leaves us without a warning when we are going astray. He sends people into our lives to speak forth His Word to give us a chance to repent.
God told Ezekiel that his role was to be a Watchman for Israel. He was to stay connected to God and warn Israel when God spoke. This was a serious role because if Ezekiel didn’t tell Israel and they continued, then their death would be his responsibility.
In a like manner, God wants to help us so we don’t ruin our future. If we ignore God’s warning, then all the consequences fall upon us. If we heed the warning, then we will be rescued from the perils that lie ahead. Have enough respect for God and His Word that when you hear His voice warning you, that you listen. Make whatever corrections God says and your future will be bright.
