Today on the podcast, Jillian reviews the faithfulness of God throughout the timeline of Nehemiah 1-7 before exploring the themes of Nehemiah 8-9. In Nehemiah 8, she reminds us that our "Why" to reading and understanding Scripture is to abide with God. He is our true strength and in his presence there is fullness of joy. Through Nehemiah 9, we saw that Jesus Christ stops our cycle of sin and softens our stiff necks to the gospel. We are sinful. Nevertheless, God is merciful!
