Valley of Dry Bones
Remember that Ezekiel was taken to a
valley which was filled with dry bones. Ezekiel was
told to walk around the bones. He noted that there
were a lot of bones, and they were very dry. God asked
him if the bones could live, and Ezekiel's reply was, "Oh,
Lord God, thou knowest."
Many of the ecclesias throughout the
world are going through troubling times, and ours is a
good example of just such difficulties. As one looks
around on a Sunday morning and sees such a sparse
attendance, the vision of dry bones is very fitting.
In conclusion, let's stop being like that valley of dry bones. Let's pull together; sinew upon sinew, flesh upon bone, skin over all. Most importantly, let's exhibit that breath of life given to us by God. Let's get up and grow!
