NEHEMIAH:
Until He Returns

Pastor David Cassidy
Nehemiah 13:6-7a


The Lord still comes, as he did on Palm Sunday, to the temple to cleanse it.

Until he comes back, he calls you his temple. He says you’re the temple of the Holy Spirit. How does he cleanse it? Well he doesn’t kick over tables anymore, he sets them. He sets the table. He puts bread on it. He puts wine on it.

He shed his blood to cleanse us. And while we eat and drink, he strengthens our faith, so that our hearts – until he comes back – keep growing in love, and  faith, and hope. Paul said that “as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”
