True To His Promise

Ezekiel 37:1-6

Ezekiel spent time prophesying to the people of Israel exiled in Babylon in some pretty interesting ways. He cut off all of his hair, he acted out things in the streets, and he even laid on his side and ate food cooked over dung to make a point.

Being a prophet of God was no easy task. He was faithful and remained connected to God through it all. The Spirit of God gave him another vision of dry bones coming back to life. This imagery is similar to how God formed the first human from the dust of the earth and breathed in life. This vision of the dry bones given to Ezekiel is God’s way of saying He has not given up on humanity; He will remain true to His covenant.

This same promise is seen through the gift of the Holy Spirit to the disciples at Pentecost. A wind blew through where they were and they were filled with the Spirit! They were full of fear but after that day they were full of faith. They were infused with new life as a result of the Holy Spirit’s work in their lives.
