Nehemiah Part XXIV - Remember Me, O Lord (13:4-31)
Humans are prone to forget things - some when young, some as we grow older, some all the way through. But though we are prone to forget, our text today reminds us that God does not forget – He always remembers. And this is cause for great rejoicing from His people. Indeed, it is the basis on which Nehemiah lived his life. He labored and strove and wept and fought to remove Jerusalem’s reproach in faith that God would not forget his labors – and it is this faith that shines through in the last chapter of His book.
