The Super Bowl is this Sunday. Think of all the planning that goes into this event with so much enthusiasm. Companies pay millions to advertise on television and people spend tons of money for food and parties. I often wonder why there is not as much excitement each Sunday at church or this much enthusiasm about reading God’s word.
The thing about a football game is that one side wins and one side loses. The great thing about going to church or studying God’s Word is that everyone wins.
Over the next few posts, I’ll be reading, answering the questions, reflecting, and writing a few thoughts on the blocks of reading below. Check in over the next few days to see if there are any nuggets of gold to share with others.
In view of the extent of God’s victory over his enemy, what purpose does God have in allowing the situation to develop to such proportions? What is God’s ultimate purpose for Israel (See verse 29 with 36:27; 37:14)? How will the nations learn the whole story of his purpose?
How does Ezekiel, as priest and prophet of the temple’s ruin, see and speak of the new temple? What provision is made for sacrifice? For those who minister in the temple?
How many inches is a cubit? What areas of the temple does Ezekiel see now? What is the purpose of a temple to God? How are you like a temple to God?
Each day, we have a chance to journey through life and share the nuggets of gold found in the Bible, from each other, and our experiences. The nugget may be in the form of an inspirational video, a photo, a post, a sermon point, or a favorite Bible verse.
