As God’s people carried out the work described in Nehemiah 3, each person had a unique part to play. At the same time, each individual was dependent on everyone else as they worked together to fulfill God’s purposes. Alistair Begg reminds us that we are not saved into isolation, but into a community. The urgent work of spreading the Gospel in our day requires a unified commitment by God’s people.
1Then Eliashib the high priest rose up with his brothers the priests, and they built the Sheep Gate. They consecrated it and set its doors. They consecrated it as far as the Tower of the Hundred, as far as the Tower of Hananel.
1 Now when Sanballat heard that we were building the wall, he was angry and greatly enraged, and he jeered at the Jews.
