thought for the day

Ezekiel 37:1-14 dry bones coming to life.

This is one of those passages that has always had my attention. A passage that spoke to me of hope, of possibility, of the power of our God. But this morning unexpectedly I find myself wondering why did God bother? I wonder what was the point? Then I rememeber on this Lenten jounrey that I too was dry bones once; at times still fill as if I am; and that through the cross and resurrection by His Spirit GOd has breathed new life into me. The question then for me is will I just keep lying in the ground as though dead or get up and live with the power of His Spirit within me?
