NEHEMIAH: Unending Restoration
Nehemiah is the story of God’s redemption and restoration of the people of Israel.
In Nehemiah 13, Nehemiah has left Jerusalem and returns to find that the people have fallen back into their old practices. For many of us, we expect that once we are restored by Christ, our troubles and brokenness will no longer affect us, but the reality is that we are all prone to drift away from God if we are not vigilant. Nehemiah 13 shows us some key ways we can tend to drift away from God and points to our ultimate restoration in Christ.
