In our second installment of “Alignment” we discussed how the building of the wall around Jerusalem served as a witness to all Israel’s enemies that God was with them. They praised God, they read from God’s Word, the split up the duties and God came through like He always does. We also looked at how when the people of God unite around the essentials and give freedom on the non-essentials, God blesses this unity with His presence and power. At the end of the building project, the people dedicated the walls by first dedicating themselves to God. We must do the same if God is going to build our church!
