NEHEMIAH: Restoring Worship
Nehemiah is the story of God’s redemption and restoration of the people of Israel.
In Nehemiah 11 & 12, Nehemiah and the people of God celebrate their restored city by dedicating the walls of Jerusalem. As such, we see a picture of what restored people do within covenant community. Restored people, those who are marked by gratitude for the one who brought about our restoration, are worshipful people. Christians are those who have been restored by Christ and live our lives in worship of him.
