(Ezekiel 16:59-63 ESV)
1. I will remember my covenant (even though you haven't' and have gone and broken it) and
2. You will remember your ways. AND
3. You will remember that I am the Lord God.
Have to admit, the reading of this passage isn't the easiest.
The sisters are the neighbouring countries that also came out of the mother country.
God will give those countries to them... as daughters. BUT not because of the covenant he has with them.
He will establish a new covenant with them.
They will be ashamed when they remember. They will KNOW what they have done and it will cause them shame.
When God makes a new covenant with them they will be confounded. It will make no sense.
For they will remember what they did with the previous covenant, how they made a mockery of it, and yet God will choose to make a new covenant with them?
Then they will remember that The Lord is God.
He will atone for all that they have done.... This verse stands out for me. God atones for all that we do. That's a conscious decision.
My sin. Atoned for. By a God who helps me remember who I am in his sight. He sees my shame and my horror at my own actions. He makes a new covenant with me. Helping me remember that he is MY Lord God.
And then he atones for the wrongs that I have done.
Pretty cool eh?
