In view of this

Hello, God has given me something in Nehemiah 9:38 which says,

““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.””

Promising: In view of the history of Israel, how they turned their backs on God, but God never left them, they made a seal. They promised to the binding agreement. They put it in writing, and the leaders, Levites, and their priests all affixed their seals to it. They took action when they viewed the sinful history of Israel.

Christians: God saw us in our sins and misery, and He sent His son to save us from our sins. Now, we can go to heaven through Him. So, why not join us, and be saved? Why not go to heaven? Why not love the one who sent His life to save you? He loves those who come to Him, and He can save you. Just come to Him, and ask for forgiveness. He will cover you in His red robes of righteousness, and you will look holy in God’s sight. Jesus covers us in His blood, which makes us pure. Jesus has saved us by giving His life for us on the cross!

What to do: Here is one thing, in application to this passage, that we are to do as Christians: Give our life to service for the Lord. Others are still in their sins. They still need a savior. So, devote your life for service to God. The priests, Levites, and leaders took action when they viewed the sins of Israel. When we look at so many unbelievers who are in their sins, we should take action, and share the good news of the Gospel with them. Share the Gospel!

God: God is so good, He is so good. He loves us so much. He has given His own son for us on a cross. Give thanks with a grateful heart, for He has given Jesus, His own son for us. Love Him with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. Love Him, for He has loved us so much (1 John 4:18-19). Jesus has given His own life for us. He has loved us so much, and He has died for us. He became the sacrifice for our sins, and for the sins of the whole world. He loves us so much.

Application: How does Nehemiah 9:38 apply to us? The priests saw the sins of Israel and took action. Jesus saw the sins of the whole world, and He took action. In view of our sins, Jesus came down and gave His own life for us to save us from our sins. Now, we look at the unbelievers, and we should take action. We should share the good news of Christ’s death with others around the world. Others are drowning in sin, so give them the life vest. Jesus died for us, He saved us from our sins.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for loving me. Thank You for taking action, and for saving me. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to grow in You, and grow more and more like You. Please help me to long to be with You. Thank You for giving Your life for me. Please strengthen me, and help me to long to be in Your word. Please strengthen other believers, and encourage them. Please send a revival, and save unbelievers everywhere, and help them to love You, and know You. Thank You for making me Your daughter, and for doing so much for me. Please help me to thank You more, and seek You more. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse(s):

Love Him for He loved, 1 John 4:18-19,

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.”

Beginning verse, Nehemiah 9:38,

““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.””

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
