 He’s Better than You Think

Today’s readings are Ezekiel 36 – 37, Psalm 110 and Revelation 19.  We are reading from the New Living Translation.

People have the wrong impression about God.  God is going to correct that.  When people see the suffering and hardship of God’s people, they have the mistaken impression that God isn’t good or that he’s not powerful enough to help them when they really need it.  They’re wrong about that. They have the wrong impression.  But God is going to help us see like he helped Ezekiel see, in this vision.

 

It’s a vision in a valley of dry, dismembered, dead, lifeless bones, skeletons littering the valley.  God desires to correct our wrong impression by impressing us with this amazing vision. For, at his word, God resurrects these bones into living breathing bodies. He restores life.  And God is clear that it’s not because they deserve it, but because he wants them, and us, to have the right impression of Him.  He wants us, and the whole world, to know what he is truly like.  He’s like David, a good shepherd and a loving and powerful king.  But He’s better than David.

It’s important that we have the right impression.  He is the One who was raised from the dead, the One who offers all of us dead lifeless people, resurrection life. When we look at Him we get the right impression.  We understand fully what God is truly like.  We see what God is offering us through his son.  He offers us life, hope, joy, love, and the life we’ve always wanted – a life we didn’t earn but one that we receive.  This is what can happen if we get the right impression.  

May God impress you today with his love, who he truly is, and what he can do for us in this life.  He can breathe life into these dry bones and make us new.
