A Prophet Among Them

There are all kinds of struggles that we face in the world.  Some of them can come to us because of God’s word.  The prophet Ezekiel knew all about struggles of life.  He was forced to leave his home and live out his days in exile.  Right about the same time he would have started his career as a priest, God called him.  The temple had been left behind in Israel.  How could a priest serve without the temple?  He could serve God’s people by bringing God’s word to them.  This didn’t remove troubles from his life.  We shouldn’t be surprised because Jesus warned us that this would come.  We are not of the world, but we are in the world as light shining in the darkness.  May we, like Ezekiel, bring peace and hope to a dying world through God’s word.
