…We will not neglect the house of our God. -Nehemiah 10:39
When the Israelites returned to Jerusalem, they confessed their sin and made a new start – rededicating themselves to the Laws that had been given to Moses. The temple at Jerusalem had been destroyed and now, with the opportunity to rebuild, they were not going to lose it again.
What about us? We have the comfort of worshiping without fear of being barred from our church building unlike the Israelites, unlike some people in other countries even today. Are we taking this blessing for granted?
