In a remarkable span of just 52 days, the walls of Jerusalem were fully erected, ushering the people into an era of prayer . This pivotal moment was underscored by Nehemiah’s wise selection of devout and honorable men to oversee the safeguarding and upkeep of the wall. The closing verses of chapter 7 highlight the individuals who were given specific roles. As we delve into chapter 8, the opening three verses illuminate the collective spirit the people displayed upon the project’s completion. In today’s sermon, Reverend Julio Orozco will draw a line between uniformity and unity, emphasizing the indispensable role the latter plays in carrying out God’s work.
The Power Of Unity
The Passage: Nehemiah 8:1-3
Ezra Reads the Law
8 And all the people gathered as one man into the square before the Water Gate. And they told Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses that the Lord had commanded Israel. 2 So Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, both men and women and all who could understand what they heard, on the first day of the seventh month. 3 And he read from it facing the square before the Water Gate from early morning until midday, in the presence of the men and the women and those who could understand. And the ears of all the people were attentive to the Book of the Law.
