Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

"Dry Bones"--the old spiritual--"dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones...the toe bone connected to the foot bone." It was a song about the Word of God in Ezekiel 37.

 Then he said to me, "Prophesy to these bones and say to them, 'Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.'"
-Ezekiel 37:4-6 TNIV

Ezekiel speaks to the dry bones of the people of God, skeletons scattered in a grave yard. He speaks the Word of God to dem bones, and slowly but surely life happens again, and the mighty wind of God brings life.

How are our bones today? Pray the Word of God puts flesh on our dry bones, and that we surge again with new life in Christ Jesus.
