Dry Bones by Prayselove Dry Bones by Prayselove
Ezekiel 37:1-6

The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3 He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”

4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath[a] enter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”

Ephesians 2:4-9
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved.

I love this!!! Very different. I love that section of scripture. People don't illustrate it very often. I really like your work on this one. :aww: I wanted to illustrate it one day, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

And pairing the scripture in Ezekiel with the one in Ephesians was a nice touch.

The Lord has blessed you with a talent. Glory to His name! :heart:

Thank you! :) haha yeah, I was trying to think of a verse in the new testament to bring the symbolism found in Ezekiel clearer and more relevant... :)
