When the Jews, who had returned from Babylon, entered...

Though fear had come upon them because of the people of those countries, they (the children of Israel) set the altar on its bases; and they offered burnt offerings on it to the LORD.
Ezra 3:3.

When the Jews, who had returned from Babylon, entered their home town of Jerusalem, a desolate scene of devastation met their eyes. Seventy years previously the soldiers of the new Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar had made a thorough job of the destruction. How forlorn they must have felt amid all those ruins. And it may have been the first time they became properly aware that the present inhabitants of the land regarded them as hostile intruders. It was a precarious situation.

What do believers do in such a situation? What would we do? Do we realise what a threat these dangers pose? Or have we already come to terms with God’s enemies? How did the believers react then? They sought their God precisely in the way He wished. What mattered to them was finding God’s approval and attending to His commandments.

They re-instituted the service of sacrifices and started with the burnt offering. Didn’t they propose getting on good terms with their opponents and looking for allies? Such thoughts were clearly far from them. They spoke with God from the place that He had appointed. For us today it would be speaking to Him of Christ who had been totally dedicated to Him. They put God and His interest first.

The message for us is: seek fellowship with the Father and the Son. This gives us tremendous, lasting joy. This is something worth experiencing. The Holy Spirit will undoubtedly lead us to this end. Then enemies, the world, problems and other things recede into the background.

Today’s reading: Daniel 2:1-16 · Psalms 37:30-40

The word of Jehovah came unto me, saying: Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say unto them that prophesy out of their own heart, Hear ye the word of Jehovah. Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow after their own spirit, and have seen nothing!...More

As a Christian, your heart ought to be aglow with genuine love for Christ, unless you are not genuinely saved as a result of having not truly repented from your sins even though you have confessed Jesus. At the new birth experience, the Holy Spirit regenerates our spirit and fills it with deep and pure love for...More
