The books of Ezra and Nehemiah continue the story of God's people after the exile in Babylon… Ezra and Nehamiah call us back to a renewed obedience to God's Word, a fresh realisation of the power of prayer, and a wholehearted commitment to the work of God in fellowship with God's people.
In an age of experienced-centred worship and entertainment-orientated evangelism, the books of Ezra and Nehemiah direct our thoughts to a holy God who demands reverent worship and uncompromising loyalty from his people. Furthermore, Ezra and Nehemiah call us back to a renewed obedience to God’s Word, a fresh realization of the power of prayer and wholehearted commitment to the work of God in fellowship with the people of God.
