Big Idea: God gives life to the dead and hopeless.

Fear is connected to hopelessness. When has this been true for you?

How do you picture the valley of dry bones?

What was God trying to communicate?

What made the difference between bodies put together and people with life?

Ruah is used 10 times in this section

-Spirit of Yahweh – vs 1, 14

-breath vs 5, 6, 8, 10

-wind – vs. 9

What similarities do we see in Genesis? Acts 2?

Jn. 20:22 – He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”

Do you need God’s breath to give you life?

Whom do you know in need of life?
