Putting the Word into Action

The time in which Ezekiel prophesied was one of great world turmoil such as is present today. Nations were rising against nation. Individuals despaired. But God was Ezekiel's strength and comfort. His grief was a sign to the people so that they would know there is a God. We meet people almost every day who are grieving a loss. Do you have a testimony of grief that you can share with these people you meet? Remember that the important part of the testimony is that there is a God that sustains us. Don't be silent! (See Ezekiel 24:27 to see what God told Ezekiel to do when encountering the grieving, "him which is escaped" from the sword, those whose family members had been killed in the final assault upon Jerusalem.
