Dedication of Jerusalem’s Walls

Handwritten page from the book of Nehemiah chapter 12 verses 25 through 40.
Nehemiah 12:25-40

Synopsis     Nehemiah 12:25-40     8/14/2020 

After the people fully reconstructed Jerusalem’s walls, Nehemiah held a dedication ceremony. In this assembly, Nehemiah gathered all the Levite song leaders from around the region. He split the song leaders into two groups. And these he directed to stand on top of the city’s newly constructed walls.  

Along with the singers, he ordered the city’s administrators to stand on top of the wall. And Nehemiah also chose to stand on top of the wall in front of the great assembly to celebrate.  

Dedication of Jerusalem’s Walls 

The Dedication Ceremony served as a moment to publicly commit to using the walls, and the city, exclusively for the glory of God. In other words, with the walls, the people intended to glorify God.

Personal Dedication 

If you really believe that God made you with purpose, then commit to that purpose.  

“I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.” Rom 12:1-2
