Thoughts for the Day

God's Commitment

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Some time later I asked his permission and came back to Jerusalem. Here I learned about the evil thing Eliashib had done in providing Tobiah a room in the courts of the house of God. Nehemiah 13:6b-7 If you have been reading Nehemiah with me, you will remember that after building the wall...

  So in the days of Zerubbabel and of Nehemiah, all Israel contributed the daily portions for the musicians and the gatekeepers. Nehemiah 12:47  In this chapter we see Nehemiah gathering all kinds of people to work to take care of the Temple and worship. But at the end of the chapter...

Do You Hear It?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  And on that day they offered great sacrifices, rejoicing because God had given them great joy. The women and children also rejoiced. The sound of rejoicing in Jerusalem could be heard far away. Nehemiah 12:43 There were choirs and people everywhere celebrating what God had provided for...

At the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem, the Levites were sought out from where they lived and were brought to Jerusalem to celebrate joyfully the dedication with songs of thanksgiving and with the music of cymbals, harps and lyres. Nehemiah 12:27  They brought people in from all over...

Community

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Now the leaders of the people settled in Jerusalem. The rest of the people cast lots to bring one out of every ten of them to live in Jerusalem, the holy city, while the remaining nine were to stay in their own towns. The people commended all who volunteered to live in Jerusalem. Nehemiah...

I Fall To My Knees

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

As it is also written in the Law, we will bring the firstborn of our sons and of our cattle, of our herds and of our flocks to the house of our God, to the priests ministering there. Nehemiah 10:36  There is something beautiful about making a commitment to God the best, the first, of those...

We also assume responsibility for bringing to the house of the Lord each year the firstfruits of our crops and of every fruit tree. Nehemiah 10:35 I am a pastor. As such I would love to jump on this passage to say authoritatively to all that we are still called to give the firstfruits of our...
