A Rededication

There are times in my life when I see God’s desire for me much more clearly than at other times.  And it’s often in these moments that I make a rededication of my life to God and His plan for me.  In the same way, the Israelite people, after rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem under Nehemiah’s leadership, find themselves humbled before God.

“The rest of the people—priests, Levites, gatekeepers, singers, temple servants and all who separated themselves from the neighboring peoples for the sake of the Law of God, together with their wives and all their sons and daughters who are able to understand— all these now join their brothers the nobles, and bind themselves with a curse and an oath to follow the Law of God given through Moses the servant of God and to obey carefully all the commands, regulations and decrees of the LORD our Lord.”   — Nehemiah 10:28-29

And their petition concludes with these words in verse 39 – “We will not neglect the house of our God.”  The contrition of these people is real – they realize that they have neglected the Lord for years leading up to this moment, and their sincerity is proven in the time that they spend in worship and submission to the Law of the Lord in previous verses.

But will this dedication last?  Is the Israelite turnaround permanent this time?  We will see in the coming chapters.
