Ezekiel 20:22 Nevertheless I withdrew mine hand, and wrought for my name’s sake, that it should not be polluted in the sight of the heathen, in whose sight I brought them forth.
God is very concerned about His reputation. He does things because of His honor, His glory. He doesn’t want the wicked world to think poorly of Him. He wouldn’t abandon His children because of His name. He didn’t want the lost people saying He didn’t or couldn’t keep His Word.
He cares about His reputation. He keeps His Word. His honor and glory are of great importance to Him.
Have you ever considered this verse? He wanted the heathen to know what kind of God He was. He didn’t want His name polluted in front of the heathen, That might affect a lot of things you think about God.
