Video Section 5: A Walk Through Ezekiel 37:11

Ezekiel 37:11 depicts a discouraged and downtrodden people of God. Ezekiel, by contrast, was sent as a messenger bearing the message of hope – that God would would manifest himself and bring new life. Today in our world, like Ezekiel's, we see the spiritually destitute and we pray earnestly for revival.

Prayer Points

  • Pray that we would recognize that God literally lives in us, that we would find our greatest hope in Him. 
  • Pray that we would not live out sinful lives and desires, but that we would live under the guidance of the Spirit that has been given to each of us.
  • Pray that your church would find hope in God, living under the present reality of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection.

Study Questions

  1. To which future event is this passage pointing toward?
  2. How is this chapter related to the previous chapter, specifically in regard to new birth?
  3. Given the context, how important is this future hope of conversion and resurrection to God's people?
