Today’s passage records how a nation collectively entered into a covenant with God. It was wonderful for the whole nation to feel that something had to be done about their sin problem. However, without individuals saying, “I will do something about this,” their feelings would be meaningless. So it is with us, true repentance involves changes in behavior–a change in direction, not just regret for misbehavior. Please open your Bible to Nehemiah chapter ten, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his discussion of this chapter.
