Rebuilding With Nehemiah, Chapter 8 Day 6


Text: 17 The whole company that had returned from exile built temporary shelters and lived in them. From the days of Joshua son of Nun until that day, the Israelites had not celebrated it like this. And their joy was very great.

Neh 8-6 feast

Teach: The people heard the teaching about the Feast of Tabernacles and their response was immediate. They built their booths and dwelt in them. And the result of their obedience was great joy.

Take: Wiersbe notes the Feast of Tabernacles had three purposes: to look back and remember the wilderness journey; to look around at the blessings that come from the harvest at hand; and to look ahead to the glorious coming kingdom (Be Determined, p. 103). God’s instruction and command is for us to take stock, be aware, and get ready.

Neh 8-6 obedience

Task: The joy of our relationship with God is rooted in obedience. Lacking joy? Check your OQ, obedience quotient.
