Do not ruin your perfection

The Lord spoke to Ezekiel, “Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him,

‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty”’” (Ezekiel 28:11, 12).

The word about the king of Tyre starts out good, but since the Lord told Ezekiel it would be a lamentation, we know that the king of Tyre did something to ruin his perfection.

Think of it: God told a man that he was the seal of perfection, and that he was full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

Then the king did something to bring persistent sin into his life, and he ruined that perfection.

Let us hear the message of Ezekiel to the king of Tyre, for when we become Christians, we start out perfect, having our sins washed away when we were baptized, but if we turn back to sin, we ruin the perfect thing that God has created in us.
