Visions of God

Ezekiel 1:1-3:27; Hebrews 4:14-5:10; Psalm 119:153-160

“Visions of God” – This is what we have in Ezekiel. These visions are not easy to understand. Their form emphasizes that God is beyond our understanding. We see the glory of God, and we fall before Him in worship (Ezekiel 3:23). We are not, however, to content ourselves with seeing the glory of God as we worship Him. We are to share the glory of God as we witness for Him (Ezekiel 3:27). As we consider this high calling – to worship the Lord and to be His witnesses, we become conscious of our weakness. This is where Jesus helps us. He is able “to sympathize with our weaknesses.” Through Him, “we … receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrews 4:15-16). Discovering the mercy and grace of God in Christ, we say to God, in worship, “Your compassion is great, O Lord” (Psalm 119:156).
