The Return of Nehemiah from Brian Branam on Vimeo.
Nehemiah was a man who caught a vision for the revival of God’s people. However, this return to a homeland could not simply be a physical relocation, but also a spiritual one as well. The scope of the gospel and plan of God for the ages has to be at the forefront of our returning or else we do not know to what we must return, what it looks like, what the standard is. The gospel calls us to return to the cross, return to the commission, return to the commandments, return to our family, return to missions, return to giving, return to worship – if we simply feel sorry and want to do better, then we have failed. The point of returning is to get ourselves back in line with God’s love for His people in the covenant.
