Word Wednesday .::20

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron.

To participate, do your own post on your blog about your Word for the week, and link it to the bottom of my post every week by using the application provided below. Always leave me a comment, so I know you dropped by, and link back to my post from yours. Thanks for participating.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Ezekiel 1 ESV

to read the whole chapter. You won't be disappointed.

Whenever I encourage people to read the Bible from cover to cover, I always tell them to make it past Ezekiel. If you make it past Ezekiel, you know you're in the home stretch. I started reading Ezekiel last Friday, and I still haven't been able to shake the first chapter. What an amazing passage on the glory of the Lord. There's so much imagery and description of the living creatures, but it's not about the living creatures, it's about the glory of the Lord. We can do a lot of amazing things and create a lot of imagery in service to God, but it's not about the imagery or the service, and it's definitely not about us. It's always, always about the glory of the Lord, and it's cemented at the end of the chapter with Ezekiel stating, "Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking."

What's your Word?
