Scripture Reading & Meditation

Ezekiel 37:1-14


“There is no magic in methods, not even in theologically impeccable methods. When we evangelize, our trust must be in God who raises the dead. He is the almighty Lord who turns men’s hearts, and He will give conversions in His own time. Meanwhile, our part is to be faithful in

making the gospel known, sure that such labor will never be in vain.”

—J.I. Packer, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God

 

“God is not willing for this broken-down world to stay in its sorry condition. As Creator, he is able to look at it and see promise, the promise of a total restoration of its beauty. And he has asked you to move in with him
to be one of his tools of restoration.”

― Paul David Tripp, Broken-Down House
