God Has Given Us Reason to Rejoice (Nehemiah 12:27-43)
SummaryMost of us would do well to discipline ourselves to reflect more often on what God is doing in the midst of our lives. After the completion of the wall of Jerusalem, Israel conducted a celebration dedication to reflect on God's provision in their lives. The church ought to do the same on a weekly basis through congregational worship, and through special celebrations when we recognize God's particular blessing.
