Starting the New Year (Ezekiel 18 & 33)

PDF of Lesson Outline

As we start the New Year, it is a great time to take inventory of our spiritual lives, including our own personal righteousness. To help us we have the prophet Ezekiel, the example of Job, and the instruction of James. This lesson encourages us to understand the heart of God, who loves all people and is waiting to forgive those who turn to Him and to show favor to those who walk in His ways. We are called to leave behind any baggage of guilt and regret of the past, as well as to finish our lives strong, imitating the righteous men and women who have gone before us.
