Ezekiel was experienced as a preacher and a prophet, nevertheless, he still needed training, and the Lord needed to remind the prophet of the serious job he had to do,

“So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul” (Ezekiel 33.7–9). 

Preachers, let us be sure that we give the word of God to the people who hear us. You who listen, be sure that you take in God’s word, for if you do not, you will lose your soul.
