Faithful Teaching Leads to Wise Discernment

Ezekiel 44:23

“And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.”

HHere we have a description of the priests who will serve in the future temple that will be built during the millennial reign of Christ. They will be faithful and diligent teachers among God’s people, unlike the priests who miserably failed to faithfully teach God’s Word in the time of Ezekiel.

Without faithful and fervent teaching, people will be deprived of truth and wisdom. Only through the knowledge of God’s Word can people discern between good and evil. So, God wants the spiritual leaders to communicate His Word to His people in order to help them recognise all that are profane (unholy) and unclean, while at the same time choose all that are holy and clean.

If God has given you good spiritual leaders (like pastors, preachers and elders), you must be grateful and listen to their teaching with great interest. Then, if you apply the truth of God’s Word that they teach daily, you will become wise to discern good from evil, and live an honourable and upright life that pleases God.
