In Ezekiel 37, God showed the prophet a valley full of bones, and asked him if those bones could live again. He answered, “O Sovereign Lord, you alone know.” (v.3). God proceeded to make those dry bones come alive again. It happened when God’s Word was proclaimed and they were filled with the Spirit of God.
We live in a nation where there are plenty of dry bones. Many people are alive physically, but spiritually they are just as dead as they can be.
There is hope for them, however. As we continue to proclaim God’s Word, it will bring life-giving change to people’s lives. They too will be filled with the Holy Spirit and come to life for God. I have seen it happen, and you probably have too.
Perhaps the next “dead” person you bless with the Word of God will be the next one to come to life. God only knows.
