Latest "Thought of the Day" From Pastor Cantine
You are sent by the king and his seven advisers to inquire about Judah and Jerusalem with regard to the Law of your God, which is in your hand
The present king was determined to carry out what Cyrus had decreed for the rebuilding of Jerusalem. He did everything carefully and with precision, and this is part of the letter that confirmed the royal decree and that gives authority to carry it out to Ezra. Ezra will face legal challenges as he seeks to promote the work, and it is well that he has his copy of the letter. Godliness is concerned with legality when laws do not require disobedience to Godís commands. We are concerned in our day to know and follow the laws of the land as we pursue the kingdom of God. Lord, give us wisdom, ingenuity and carefulness as we seek to glorify Jesus.
