Dry Bones


5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. 6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the Lord.”

Ezekiel 37:5-6

We walk this planet, many of us, breathing with sinews, flesh, and skin. But many do not know the Lord. The Lord, Yahweh, the Creator of all things, will fill us with his spirit. He will pour new life into us. We are, without him, just dry bones. But with the Lord, we are living, breathing creatures full of life.

We must, however, call on the Lord for His help. We cannot do it alone. The Christian religion is a unique religion. We know that we cannot do it ourselves. We must surrender to God and let him work in us. Call on the Lord and ask him to create in you a new heart. He will. And you will know life as you have never known it before.

Whether others find burden and heartache, you will find joy. Where others look down, you will look up. And where others see the present, you will see eternity on the horizon.
