Ezekiel 18: 31-32 ” Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live! “
Repent and live! A simple and very straightforward command…so why don’t we heed it? A sinful person’s heart is full of wickedness and fails to see the truth. By hardening their heart and mind against God, they refuse to ask for forgiveness and turn their lives around, thus forfeiting eternal life.
