Ezra prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, to do it, and to teach others. This is the duty of everyone charged to teach the Word, whether they are the head of a household in a family or a pastor or teacher in the church. The key to understanding God’s Word comes from application of it to one’s life. Even Artaxerxes, a Gentile king, recognized the power of God’s Law. Please open your Bible to Ezra chapter seven, verse eight, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola continues his study of this chapter.
