It was such a pleasure seeing so many of you yesterday in church and bible class, even if it was a “virtual” experience. I know it isn’t the same, but it is what we have, and God will see us through this.
In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1)
“So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a sound, and behold, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them. But there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, Thus says the Lord GOD: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.” (Ezekiel 37:7–10)
Just as God breathed life into Adam and Eve at creation, even so our Lord breathes life into you. His Word does what it says. He creates. He makes alive. He is the Lord of life and death. Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord, Jesus Christ!
