The Slow Cooking of Jerusalem

Ezekiel 24:1-5 pictured the Lord putting Jerusalem in a pot and making a stew. Once the stew finished, the Lord would start to pull out parts, just as we would do when we start to eat what we have cooked,
“Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:
‘Woe to the bloody city,
To the pot whose scum is in it,
And whose scum is not gone from it!
Bring it out piece by piece…'”
(Ezekiel 24:6-8)
Somehow I just do not want my city, my country, and especially my church to be so pictured. It is time for every Christian to renew him and herself to the Lord and to live in holiness.
