I am working on a message to be given July 4 and the text I am working on is in Ezekiel 2. I have backed up into chapter 1 for context and found myself bogged down in weird visions and impossible interpretations.
Bible study and sermon prep is fun.
As I read and study, then get to the end of the chapter with Ezekiel’s response, I find myself in awe again. Ezekiel has come into the presence of God aware of two things at once:
1. He is not worthy to be there and 2. he serves a nation desperately in need of the presence of God.
As I prepare I am left with this incredible thought to hold as I dive deeper: Do we not need a fresh awareness of the holiness and majesty of God?
