A Heart of Faithfulness

Ezekiel 20

Ezekiel 20 starts off rather strangely with God refusing to be enquired of by the leaders of His people. Why would God give the silent treatment to those who have come to inquire of Him? Throughout this chapter, God rehearses the history of His gracious dealings with a stubborn people. He contrasts His character of faithfulness with the unfaithfulness of His professed people. Furthermore, the prophet connects three concepts: Faithfulness to God, obedience to His commandments and the Sabbath day. How are these related? What message can a 21st century generation take from the people of Ezekiel's time?
