Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me (Ezekiel 3:17).
Our purpose in this life is to go to Heaven. I don’t think anyone would disagree with that statement. Our second purpose is to take others with us to Heaven. We must go into all the world and preach the Gospel. How selfish would we be if we prayed and worked only for ourselves when we have others yearning for the Gospel?
We are responsible for taking God’s message to others. I do not want to be surprised on the day of Judgment that God really meant what He said about taking the Gospel into the world. Ezekiel had the task of warning the people of spiritual dangers, and like Ezekiel, we too have that task.
