Nehemiah 10:1-30 — It is the response after one says “Amen” that truly matters, for that proves the authenticity of what was prayed. A glorious prayer had just been prayed. Confession was made for the sins of the people but it didn’t just stop with prayer, there was practical change. Spiritual reformation began with the people making a covenant with God and the first issue that was dealt with was marriage.
This is the subject we come to as we continue our study through the Book of Nehemiah. In chapter 10 we are reminded of the great importance of doing marriage God’s way.
