The text this week is Ezekiel 2:1 – 3:27. These two chapters give the details of Ezekiel’s commission to proclaim God’s word. They remind us that we need to first hear and receive God’s word ourselves before we say again what he has said to others. The worship will focus on the sufficiency of God’s Word:
Isaiah 40:6-8 A voice says, “Cry!” And I said, “What shall I cry?” All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. 7The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the LORD blows on it; surely the people are grass. 8The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.
