The pastor at my church made an awesome study guide to go through Nehemiah this spring, and today’s assignment was to read Chapter 3 (I think, I might have done the wrong day, but, either way, I read Nehemiah 3 today.)
At first I was like, well, this is exciting, a bunch of dude’s names, and how they’re building a wall at some gate I’ve never heard of and can never see. Awesome.
But then it was like, whoa, that is awesome. The priest was building up the wall for Jerusalem over by his house, the guy who makes perfume was building it up near him, and some guy with his daughters built it up over by his place.
That is such a diverse group of people! It’s crazy! And it really just made me realize how special each and every one of us is in the kingdom of God, and in getting His will accomplished. We need each other so much!
that’s really all I have to say. You should read Neheimah 3, it’s pretty cool.
“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. …. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” -I Corinthians 12:12-13, 27
