Nehemiah 8:8 Read And Share God’s Word

They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people understood what was being read. Nehemiah 8:8

Once the walls of the city were built the Israelites had gathered together to celebrate. This celebration would last seven days. Each day, all morning, the priests would read from the Book of the Law of God and explain what was being read to the people. This book was the books of Moses that contained God’s law for the people to follow. It had been neglected for many years, which had resulted in their being taken into captivity.

Throughout the world there are many things that are started, but left to fall apart after a time. The original desire for what was started was forgotten. Often it is forgotten because they do not remember why the thing was started in the first place.

When people lose the heart of why an event was started, they will lose the heart to keep it going. Loosing that heart is very easy as time passes on. The routine becomes so common that people begin to put it aside. Everyone wants something new, and to not keep going over the same thing again and again.

Living as a believer requires remembering what was said and done. God’s Word was given to reveal God’s plans and His heart for all people, and to show what every person must do and be like.

You must take time to read God’s Word each day. Not only must you read His Word, but you must also share what it says with others. God’s Holy Spirit will dwell in you and guide you into the meaning of what His word says. You will have the ability to apply every scripture to life in the way God meant it to be used.

Tell others what God’s Word, the Bible, means to you.

What has He told you today?

How have you applied it to your life today?

As you do these things, it will keep you in the center of God’s will for your life. You will also be working at building His kingdom by building others up with His Word.

Do not neglect His Word today. He has something to tell you.

I pray today that God will fill you with a desire to know His Word; that you will read the Bible daily; that you will tell others what God has told you; and that you will build His kingdom daily.

  1. Amen, so true. Just reading in Ecclesiastes where Solomon said there is nothing new underneath the sun. This monotony points us to God as the world cannot satisfy this God-shaped vacuum in our soul. Great job, again!
