Seeking: Can these bones live?: In Ezekiel’s vision, God asks the prophet, “Can these bones live?” Do we believe new life can come after death? Can we find hope when things are bleak? Can we trust God’s resurrection? While we look to God to carry us through the valley, God looks to us to embody hope for others. As we prepare for Psalm Sunday, we remember how Jesus began his final journey toward resurrection: by returning to Judea after the death of his dear friend, Lazarus. As we walk through the valley of dry bones that leads us to Calvary Hill, let us seek out the hope that will stir in us and sustain us.

Seeking: Will you give me a drink? In the heat of midday, Jesus seeks out a Samaritan woman, with a request that is also a question and an invitation into a new way of life: “Will you give me a drink?” As the question creates dialogue, Jesus sees the woman fully, and she leaves the well transformed. In the wilderness, the Israelites essentially ask: “Will you give us a drink, God? Will you take care of us, even now?” This week, we might imagine ourselves at the well or in the wilderness. Are we willing to care for our neighbors, seeking to not just quench thirst, but to find living waters that sustain us all?

Seeking: How do we begin again? Nicodemus comes to Jesus under the veil of night to ask him big faith questions. Jesus invites him to begin again, to learn a new way of knowing and living out his faith. In Genesis, God commands Abram and Sarai to leave everything—their home, their family, their land—to seek the land of Canaan and begin again. Like Nicodemus, what are the questions we ask in the dark? Like Abram and Sarai, how do we follow God’s calling to begin again?

Seeking the fruit of the garden, Adam and Eve allow the snake’s manipulative voice to become louder than God’s voice. In the wilderness, Jesus defies the deception of the tempter by listening intuitively—to God, to his inner moral compass, to the teachings of his faith. Whose voices—and what messages—take up too much space in your head? Who will you listen to?

God’s restoration is for the whole world. Through God’s grace, we are merely a small part of the richness of God’s works.

We live in the in-between: Christ has brought restoration, and the world still cries out to be restored. These two truths do not cancel each other out but coexist.

God has promised to restore us and has acted in Jesus to further God’s plan of restoration. Because of God’s promise, we can act by asking for what we need and by stepping out in faith.

This is a week of encouragement. We can be strong because the one who can truly restore us is coming. We have hope because of what we have already seen.
