“There Is Hope!”

“There Is Hope!”

Blessings folk!

What were the people to do?

The Word of the Lord came…

Ezr 10:2-4
Shecaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, said to Ezra,
“We have been unfaithful to our God and have married foreign women from the peoples of the land; yet now there is hope for Israel in spite of this.

“So now let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives and their children, according to the counsel of my lord and of those who tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law.

For this matter is your responsibility, but we will be with you;
be courageous and act.”

The Word came through Shecaniah and was directed to Ezra

The people had been unfaithful to God.
“Yet, now there is hope for Israel in spite of this”.

Know this.
There is hope!
Regardless of the sin.
There is hope in the Lord!

The Lord through Shecaniah gives direction - make a covenant with god to put away the wives/children…according to the Law.

The Lord through Shecaniah then gives a strong exhortation to Ezra.
This matter is your responsibility.
Be courageous!

The people would be with him.
They would respond and follow.

The Word for us?
Leaders arise.
Be courageous.

Leaders/people live in holiness before the Lord.
