Thus I purified them from everything foreign and appointed duties for the priests and the Levites, each in his task. Nehemiah 13:30
Can one man change a whole town? Nehemiah did! He wanted to be remembered by God for doing what is right. So, he cleansed Jerusalem and particularly the areas of worship from foreign influence and restored the way of worship.
How about me? Is there any area I have allowed anything foreign to God to creep in? Are all aspects of worship operational? Prayer, Giving, Rest (Sabbath)?
God, what an example Nehemiah is of righteousness and zeal with knowledge and insight. Please give me his spirit is all I do today.
