In response to the proclamation of God’s Word, Nehemiah and the people of Israel made a binding agreement that they would not neglect the House of God. But what did this mean practically? Alistair Begg teaches that responding to God’s Word from the heart realigns our focus. Like the Israelites, we must consider God’s purposes over our preferences, our responsibilities over perceived rights, and long-term priorities over immediate satisfaction.
38“Because of all this we make a firm covenant in writing; on the sealed document are the names of3 our princes, our Levites, and our priests.
