“So on the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand. He read it aloud from daybreak till noon … in the presence of the men, women and others who could understand. And all the people listened attentively to the Book of the Law.”
Nehemiah 8:2-3 NIV
Soul, how long since you really dove into the Word of God? After more than 100 years the Jews were excited to finally have their temple completed and city walls fortified. They requested their priest read them the Book of the Law so they better know God and obey God.
Author and speaker Rebecca Ashbrook Carroll writes: “”Follow me,” Jesus said (Luke 9:23). It sounds easy. But you won’t follow someone you don’t trust. You can’t trust someone you don’t know, and you cannot know Christ apart from his Word.“
What are you doing to know Christ more?🚦
