God makes use of the church to do great works like sending members on mission trips and community service. These activities give honor to God and many are able to observe His greatness.
In today’s reading of Ezekiel 36, God is concerned about the honor of His name. The enemy nations had plundered and ridiculed His people of Israel and now God is revealing his plan through Ezekiel to bring them down. God uses Israel to show the holiness of His great name. He gives His people a new heart and spirit so they can recognize His greatness, worship Him, and tell others.
Going to a praise and worship service is a great way to begin a work week. There is a sense of community and togetherness as you worship God together. Also with YouTube and the Internet, each day can start by worshiping God together with praise and worship videos like this one: Revelation Song – Kari Jobe .
What an awesome God we serve. This day with God will be amazing! Today, I’m praying for consistently applying my faith with a new heart and spirit; knowing that God is present and living in expectation of God’s gracious promise.
