The pulpit represents the rudder of the church. In Nehemiah 8, the people of God gathered to hear God’s Word proclaimed, and their hearts were stirred to action. Alistair Begg explains that as they listened, the Word of God re-ordered their lives, which manifested in obedience at home, within the church, and in public. The Word of God, faithfully preached, transforms the lives of God’s people.
13On the second day the heads of fathers' houses of all the people, with the priests and the Levites, came together to Ezra the scribe in order to study the words of the Law.
