The Temple in the Soul
A Sermon on Ezekiel 36:33-35
“Thus says the Lord GOD: On the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places shall be rebuilt. And the land that was desolate shall be tilled, instead of being the desolation that it was in the sight of all who passed by. And they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’ (ESV)
The perfection of the Christian salvation; God's action to remove sin; the exact opposite of what man thinks; the temple in the soul; the temple is ruined and sacked by sin; sin leads to loneliness and confusion; the Gospel that undoes the effects of sin.
