The man and his mission: An introduction to the prophet, 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.
Ezra and Nehemiah were called by God for a specific task: to rebuild what lay in ruins.
Resistance to the work of God is a prevalent theme in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah.
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.
This week, we will look at the covenant that the Israelites renewed with God, in Nehemiah 10, and also discuss some general information about the history and importance of covenant making in the Bible.
