Day 14

Read Nehemiah 8:1-12

Imagine listening to a sermon that lasted “from early morning to midday”? God’s people listened to Ezra and responded with worship, not because of the preacher’s skill, but because of the power of the Word that was preached.

Reflection: What role do you think listening to a sermon plays in your spiritual growth? What should we do with what we hear on a Sunday morning?

Prayer Point: Pray you would hear God’s voice as you listen to His Word preached.

Families/Kids: Read The Jesus Storybook Bible: Get Ready!

Reflection: Why do you think Ezra wanted to remind God’s people of all these old Bible stories? Why should we listen to all these old Bible stories?

Prayer Point: Ask God to help you to remember the Bible stories you hear, and also understand what He wants you to know about Him, yourself, and Jesus His Son.
