even the common is set apart

Ezekiel 48:15-20 (JDV)

Ezekiel 48:15 “The remaining area, 5000 cubits wide and 25,000 cubits long, will be for common use by the city, for both residential and open space. The city will be in the middle of it.
Ezekiel 48:16 These are the city’s measurements: 4,500 cubits on the north side; 4,500 cubits on the south side; 4,500 cubits on the east side; and 4,500 cubits on the west side.
Ezekiel 48:17 The city’s open space will extend 425 feet to the north, 425 feet to the south, 425 feet to the east, and 425 feet to the west.
Ezekiel 48:18 “The remainder of the length alongside the sacred donation will be 10,000 cubits to the east and 10,000 cubits to the west. It will run alongside the sacred donation. Its produce will be food for the workers of the city.
Ezekiel 48:19 The city’s workers from all the tribes of Israel will cultivate it.
Ezekiel 48:20 The entire donation will be 25,000 cubits by 25,000 cubits; you are to set apart the sacred donation along with the city property as a square area.

even the common is set apart

Even the common area of the next Jerusalem is a sacred place. City workers from each tribe will cultivate and preserve this land.

Our Master calls us to be a city on a hill, which cannot be hidden. We should have no mundane areas that do not reflect his presence and power. Even the common everyday moments of our lives should shine for the world to see.
