Today’s Sermon – A view of God through a Repentant Heart – Nehemiah 9
Below are some short excerpts on Nehemiah 9. Pastor Dan Thibault gives us a view of God through a Repentant Heart. The Lord never left the Jewish People in their Exodus from Egypt and He Honored and Fulfilled his Covenant with Abraham.
The Israelites remembered their history and made a summary of God’s past works reminding themselves of God’s great heritage and promises. (crib notes NIV). The Jewish people renewed the relationship with God.
Versus 1-3 The Israelites Confess Their Sins
Versus 4-6 The Israelites – Read the Book of the Law - “Stand up and praise the Lord your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting.[a]”
Versus 7-12: The Israelites remembers God’s covenant with Abraham and God’s blessings and hand in their Exodus from Egypt as slaves.
Verse 13-15: The Lord gave the Israelites the Ten Commandments and Food to eat in journey.
Verses 16: The Israelites acknowledged their sins and refusal to obey God.
Verses 17-25: God protected Israel in it’s journey and honored his Covenant with Abraham and the Israelites took over the lands of the Canaanites and the county sides of Palestine.
Verse 38: The Agreement of the People
38 “In view of all this, we are making a binding agreement, putting it in writing, and our leaders, our Levites and our priests are affixing their seals to it.”[d]
