More love for Jesus

Ezekiel 7:1-9:11; Hebrews 6:13-7:10; Psalm 119:161-168

The prophet was shown “the utterly detestable things the house of Israel is doing here (in the Temple), things that will drive Me (God) far from My sanctuary” (Ezekiel 8:6). There were, however, “those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it” (Ezekiel 9:4). There was to be judgment, but it would not fall on those who loved the Lord and His House (Ezekiel 9:6). As we read of the “sanctuary”, which was defiled, we read also, in Hebrews 6:19-20, of the sanctuary, which will never be defiled: “the inner sanctuary …. where Jesus … has entered on our behalf.” How are we to respond to the defiling of the sanctuary? We are to spend more time, giving our love to Jesus, entering “the inner sanctuary” where He is – “I hate and abhor falsehood but I love Your law. Seven times a day I praise You for Your righteous laws” (Psalm 119:163-164).
