Death to Life
In today’s reading (Ezekiel 35:1-37:26) God shows us two important truths. First, the condition of lost people is one of utter hopelessness. They are not merely weak or sick. They are dead. Furthermore, their bones are bleached out. Second, God’s Spirit has power to bring life to such corpses.
Anytime an unbeliever is born again that miracle of transformation of death to life reoccurs. [See Ephesians 2:1-10]. Have you experienced that transformation? God promises that “everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10: 13). Praise God for His power. He is glorified by saving the dead.
