Read: Ezekiel 37:1-10
This is a scripture that brings back memories of a song from my childhood about dry bones. But if we look closer, we find a reminder that “God, only you know…” More importantly, God has “no limit.” We can make seemingly impossible things happen with God.
More than making things happen, we need to tell people about it. We need to “prophesy.” This army of resurrected dry bones brought back to life through our no limit God reminds us that our churches can be brought into new life. We need to prophesy to those dry bones outside our walls.
We are in the middle of Lent and we are being reminded that we must share our story, the story of our god of no limit, our God who sent his son to earth to save us. Jesus died to take away our sins.
Dear God, help us to bring your word to others and always to remember the sacrifice of your son. During this season of Lent, may we always remember what is ahead, that we share the story of others. All this we ask in the name of your son, Jesus the Christ. Amen.
