NEHEMIAH STRIKES BACK
By William Thorne
Woe to us, if we hand over our lives to God and over time slip back into old habits or weak convictions - Nehemiah returns to find the temple in disarray and the Israelite's returning to old patterns, as we do the same in our lives our response should reflect Nehemiah's immense zeal.

Israel has finished the walls and is celebrating, but here we see Nehemiah begin to build for the future, raising up leaders to take his place, checking the Israelite's spiritual health, and having the leaders give back to God out of gratitude.
