Read Nehemiah 7
What?? 66 verses worth of unpronounceable names! Passages like this are why I like to use a Bible app that can read to me. They also make me grateful for names like Charles, Ron, Larry, Josh . . .
66 verses worth of names that were important to God, important enough that He inspired men to record them. “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17) “ALL Scripture . .”
If it was important to God to record the names of those who returned to Jerusalem after being held captive in Babylon for some 70 years, is it possible that He is keeping a record of my comings and goings? How would I feel if they were written for all to read - for centuries! “Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.” (Psalm 119:133 KJV) Thank You, Lord!
One great way to weave worship into our daily lives is to fill it with music that helps focus our hearts on our great God. Here is a Spotify playlist that has all the songs our worship team has led us through in the last month’s Sunday evening services to get you started. http://bit.ly/GBCPMThisMonth It’s updated weekly, so “follow” it to keep fresh worship music in your life.
