Ezekiel 37-39, Jude
So glad you posted that you are not giving up! Ezekiel has been a difficult book to read, but these latest chapters are some of the best. There is a great song by Lauren Daigle called “Come Alive (Dry Bones)” that helps us relate Ezekiel 37 to our lives. And Jude 1 is a huge encouragement to keep the faith by listening to God’s Word, not what our friends or our minds or our culture would say to us.
This is my first time doing this and I decided to bring my life back to Christ because I am tired of the pain and tears and I want healing and Christ back into my life….a couple verses that stuck out to me the most include Ezekiel 37 vs 6 : “and I will lay sinews upon you and will bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin and put breath in you and he shall live and know that I am the lord” Ezekiel 37 vs 12: “therefore prophesy and day into them, this saint the Lord God, Behold O my people I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves and bring you into the land of Israel”. These two verses spoke to me the most because I take it as it’s God taking away the old in my life and breathing the new into my life. Taking me away from all the pains , dead weight that are in my life and bringing me into his salvation. A reason why I will continue with this and not give up. Putting my faith and life in his hands and not in the hands of human.
The dichotomy of the Old Testament God vs the New Testament God is compelling. How do you work through understanding what kind of God we have? Is he vengeful? Is he loving and forgiving? If you’re afraid of the Old Testament God, does that just mean that there are clearly sins on your mind? Would love to hear your thoughts
