Nehemiah 8:10

 

Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”

 

EXAMPLE

 

We accompanied our son and his fiancé when they met with her priest to sign some pre-wedding ceremony papers. While filling out the form, our son read aloud a few questions. When he got to the last one, which read: “Are you entering this marriage at your own will?” he looked over at his fiancé. “Put down ‘Yes,'” she said.

LESSON

 

Nehemiah chapter 8 records one of the most spectacular celebrations of the work of God in the Old Testament. The spiritual renewal of the people begins with a challenge to the mind, continues with an effect on the emotions & concludes with a people returning to God.

In Nehemiah 8, we see true worship by the people. We see a longing for God’s word; Listening to God’s word and we see that we must let God speak to us through His word. The Scriptures teach that the joy of the Lord is our strength. This is a lesson which provides guidance on how we can experience the power of spiritual joy in our Christian lives.
