When it comes to engaging the big issues, sometimes Christians don’t read the room. We have responded to politics in different ways: withdrawing from it, worshiping it, succumbing to worldliness, else warring over opposing views. People used to look at politics in view of the bible, now they look at the bible in view of politics. It’s important we …

What do you value in life and what are you willing to make sacrifice for? The most valuable thing we could ever have is the free grace of Jesus, and he is worth making sacrifices for.Mary valued Jesus, anointing him with an expensive perfume as recognition of his worth and of his upcoming burial. Judas overvalued something of insignificant value, a…
 
Recapitulation, the repetition of a bad phase, is the opposite of rehabilitation. After all the work of rebuilding the temple, Israel recapitulated. The people of God had gone back to the things we thought they left behind, desecrating the priesthood, neglecting the temple, and marrying foreign wives, showing their contempt for God and his commands…

Even after 141 years of despair, ruin, and trouble, Israel found something to rejoice in, and the joy of Jerusalem was heard far away. The Israelites cast lots to decide which families would relocate to the heart of the city. This was common practice in the ancient and biblical world. They embraced the risk and uncertainty that came with casting lo…

Sorry is an uncomfortable word. Yet, if we truly understood who God is and who we are, we would understand the necessity of repentance in the Christian life, and that it’s a good thing. God was faithful and attentive to Israel, yet they remained stiff-necked, refusing to obey. Even we remain stubborn in our sin, saying sorry for being caught and be…

The city was large but the people were few, still they came from every generation reading the word and responding with understanding and praise in the public square. It takes a village to raise a child in the Lord, and to be a people of God we need to be around the people of God, praying for one another and reading the word. The word of God, rightl…

Not only is opposition to the rebuild coming from the enemy outside the city, but also within God’s people inside the city. In Jerusalem, greedy leaders became loan sharks, piling interests onto loans given to their poorer neighbours, breaking God’s law. The poor, unable to pay back the loans, had to sell their lands as collateral, or had they no l…

Proximity doesn’t always equal intimacy; Judea and Samaria were neighbours but always at odds with one another. When Sanballat, king of Samaria, sees the Israelites rebuilding the temple, he opposes them by questioning their strength, motives, capacity, vision, and ability. The devil doesn’t antagonise God’s people with thunder, but by questioning …

Jerusalem was once the city of God, but it had become the city of fools. Sometimes we can become so accustomed with brokenness, we forget it exists. In order to do something about brokenness, we have…

He is living in Susa, the most liveable city of Persia, and has influence as the loyal cupbearer to King Artaxerxes I. Yet, Nehemiah wept and prayed.

Light cannot have fellowship with darkness; A believer cannot marry a non-believer. For those already in relationships with unbelievers, however, the Bible says to persevere so that your holiness might stir the heart of the other. Yet, cases of non-believers coming to faith because of a faithful significant other are few and far between. If you are…
