Topic: Sermons Passage: Nehemiah 13:1–13:14
In this final message in his series on Nehemiah, Mike Osborne explains what happened in Jerusalem when Nehemiah decided to return to Susa, the capital of Persia, for a time. You've heard the old adage: "When the cat's away, the mice will play"? That seems to be borne out by Nehemiah 13. But Nehemiah was a faithful friend to the Israelites. His actions upon his return to Jerusalem point us to Jesus Christ, the one true and faithful Friend. Living a life of dependence upon his grace will help you be a faithful follower of God.
