Without the Cross, Nothing Else Matters

Jay Strother · Nehemiah 13:14

The story ends on a sad note with a stark contrast between the faithlessness of the people and the faithfulness of Nehemiah.  The worship of the people is misplaced and so they don’t value what God values any longer.  In the meta-narrative, this inability of the people to keep their promises reveals a need and longing for the Messiah to come to save us from ourselves and failed attempts at good works.  The time of the old has gone…now the stage is set for the new to come.  Come Lord Jesus!
