“And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall LIVE…” Ezekiel 37:14
Read that tonight. Humbled and thankful that God in His infinite mercy, looked upon these dry bones and breathed life into them. I was dead in my trespasses, and God gave me life. Not by my own works so that I may not boast, but by His grace.
But, God has not breathed into me and given me His Spirit for me, but for Him. The Holy Spirit dwells, “tabernacles”, within me in order to empower me to be a witness to the ends of the earth, proclaiming Christ and Him crucified, and proclaiming the life and redemption and reconciliation that He alone brings.
I am alive by grace to be a witness of that grace.
Lord, how this sinner will need grace in order to do that.
