In the beginning of Ezekiel, we find these words "the heavens were opened". And with those words, Ezekiel's life was forever changed. I haven't gotten far enough into Ezekiel to see if what he did matters to the people of Judah and Israel.
What Ezekiel saw though... God's glory forever changed his life. He wasn't necessarily happy about it, but he still did all that the Lord required of him. He was called the "Son of Man" and he went through so much (and that's only in the first eight chapters) and I honestly can't see a fellow doing all that he did unless he was profoundly changed. He sat in bitterness for a week and then got on to it.
From lying on his side, to shaving his head bald and building a siege works. Ezekiel was kept busy.... and it all started by God's glory coming down out of the sky.
Makes me wonder....how has God's glory changed my life? Can people see the change?
