August 15

We are not Ezekiel, who was sent to the people of Israel to warn them of their wickedness, but we do have a mandate to follow. We may want to shrink back and let the world go by and continue in their evil ways, and let them deal with the consequences of their own actions, but if we don’t warn them, we could be held responsible, and their blood could be on our hands. The world we live in is detestable, and the vulgar and profane acts of evil are not even hidden anymore; corruption is practiced openly for all to see. If you really believe in the Almighty, your confidence in His protection will help carry you through. I’m not saying you should become a news channel, but I am saying that you are responsible for those you come in contact with, your family, and your friends. Give them a warning about their actions, if they continue in their ungodly ways, leave them to the wrath of the Almighty; then you can be sure that you’ve done all you could do. 

If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die for his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul. Ezekiel 3:18-19
