NEHEMIAH: Restoring Covenant Community
Nehemiah is the story of God’s redemption and restoration of the people of Israel.
In Nehemiah 10, Nehemiah and the people of Israel have celebrated the enduring love of God who had remained steadfast to his covenant and confess where they have fallen short. In response, they sign a covenant to ensure their own faithfulness and obedience to God. Similarly, we too commit ourselves to the covenant community of the local church. In doing so, we join a community of believers who are bound to growing in the likeness of Jesus Christ.
