Watering Plants, Pulling Weeds
The people of God were to be different. They were to be a light in the darkness. But after many years of neglect, the people had forgotten God’s law and wandered away from His word. When the people gathered around Ezra to hear God’s law read, what they heard reminded them of their neglect and their need for repentance. Opening up Nehemiah 9:1-5, Daniel reminds us that confession is an integral part of our worship, along with implementing holy habits in our day for there to be continual growth in the Christian life.
