Resistance to the work of God is a prevalent theme in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah.
Our best performance comes from a realisation of who God is and what He has done, and from knowing how He lovingly intervenes on behalf of His people.
The man and his mission: An introduction to the prophet, Nehemiah.
Ezra and Nehemiah were called by God for a specific task: to rebuild what lay in ruins.
Rules and regulations should never become an end in and of themselves. Rather, they are a means to reflect the character of Jesus.
Chapters 8-10 of Nehemiah describe an important series of events that show how the children of Israel were determined to obey the Word of God.
The goodness of God evokes praise and feasting, while also reminding us that we need God to forgive, cleanse and re-create us.
