Devotion by Rev. Ross Adams
30 “I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.
The wall spoken of here is not made of stone, but of faithful people united in their efforts to resist evil. This wall was in disrepair because there was no one who could lead the people back to God. The feeble attempts to repair the gap–through religious rituals or messages based on opinion rather than Godâ€™s will– were as worthless as whitewash; only covering the real problems. What the people really needed was total spiritual reconstruction! When we give the appearance of loving God without living his way, we are covering up sins that could eventually damage us beyond repair. Donâ€™t use religion as a whitewash; repair your life by applying the principles of Godâ€™s Word. Then you can join with others to stand â€œin the gapâ€ and make a difference for God in the world through prayer and intercession.
If you donâ€™t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you can at this moment confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God hath raised Him from the dead. With this action, you are saved! Be sure to read your bible, get connected to a fellowship of believers in and followers of Christ so that you may grow in knowledge of and in relationship with our Lord.
