Today you should read: Ezekiel 43

It’s good to be reading about restoration here in these later chapters of Ezekiel. It’s encouraging to read about visions of good things happening in Jerusalem because of the grace and mercy of God. The temple was prophesied to be rebuilt in Jerusalem, and the presence of the Lord would be in His house again. It’s an encouraging and hopeful vision.

Verse 4 stuck out to me today as I read these words: “And the glory of the Lord came into the house…”

That vision that Ezekiel saw reminded me of what happens to us at the moment of our salvation. The glory of the Lord comes into His house when we receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Remember, we are the temple now. When He enters into our lives, a total restoration is done. He makes us new. We become different people.

I hope you will take a couple minutes today and reflect on the amazing privilege and mystery it is that He has chosen to dwell within you and me. As a result, we get the privilege to reflect His glory to others today and every day. That is encouraging for me to think about today.
