Scripture Read: Ezekiel 1:1 - 3; 36:16- 38; 37
Title: The Promise of New Life and Restoration
(H) Highlight verse: "And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules." Ezekiel 36:26 - 27
(E) Explain: Ezekiel was commissioned to be a prophet to the exiles. In todays passages there are four highlights to this passage. They are promises, prophecies and visions God gives to Ezekiel to give to the people of Israel who are in exile.
(A) Application: These four highlights can be applied to us today.
(R) Respond: Lord, thank you that I have a heart of flesh that gives me life in Jesus Christ. Thank you that I have the Spirit in me so I can live in obedience to God and that I can live in unity with my brothers and sisters in Christ.
