As you read about Ezekiel exposing the sin of Israel and casting hope for the future, you also have the book of Psalms open, which records many prayers of confession and hope. Psalm 32:5 says, “Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord.’ And you forgave the guilt of my sin.” The words sin, iniquity, and transgression are not used as commonly in today’s culture, so let’s learn more. We’ll start with the word sin. Sin is the most widely used “bad word” in the Bible, but its meaning isn’t always black and white. In its most basic form, sin simply means to miss the mark or fall short of a goal. In this video, we’ll explore the concept of “moral failure” that underlies this important biblical word. Get ready to discover a profound and realistic portrait of the human condition.
Today, we continue our journey through the book of Ezekiel in chapters 5-8 as we learn from this book.
