At the right place and the right time, God used a cupbearer to King Artaxerxes to lead a remnant of his people back into his grace. We get to relive this wonderful history and breathtaking book where persecution is met with perseverance and tired, weak arms find their strength in the Lord and his faithfulness. Nehemiah may be the name of the book, but the ultimate goal of this story shows a different main Character and praises the Lord of full and free grace to sinners. With such a Savior, we delight to see the storied examples of joyful worship, selfless service and undying courage in the pages of this book. The Lord encourage us all to imitate their fruits of faith as blesses the work of our hands and fuels us with his faithful love.
