Nehemiah Devotions Chapter 3, Day 2

Tuesday Start with the place of worship

Text: Then Eliashib the high priest and the other priests started to rebuild at the Sheep Gate. They dedicated it and set up its doors, building the wall as far as the Tower of the Hundred, which they dedicated, and the Tower of Hananel. (Nehemiah 3:1, NLT)

The work began with the place of worship and with the leaders of worship. God’s people stepped up and started the work.

This may seem odd to our twenty-first century minds when people are leaving the church in droves. Organized religion continues to be ridiculed and left behind as outdated and out of touch. Our rubble is showing.

But the rebuilding began with the priests, and the next words we read are that the people worked with them.

As we read on, we will see there’s a place where each of us can join the rebuilding project. Let’s begin here by asking God to show us what our part is in the rebuilding of worship.
