“Things are not going well for those who returned to the province of Judah. They are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem has been torn down, and the gates have been destroyed by fire.”
Nehemiah 1:3 (NLT)

"Then the rest of the people—the priests, Levites, gatekeepers, singers, Temple servants, and all who had separated themselves from the pagan people of the land in order to obey the Law of God, together with their wives, sons, daughters, and all who were old enough to understand— joined their leaders and bound themselves with an oath. They swore a curse on themselves if they failed to obey the Law of God as issued by his servant Moses. They solemnly promised to carefully follow all the commands, regulations, and decrees of the LORD our Lord."
Nehemiah 10:28-29 (NLT)

“We promise not to let our daughters marry the pagan people of the land, and not to let our sons marry their daughters.”
Nehemiah 10:30 (NLT)

“You must not intermarry with them. Do not let your daughters and sons marry their sons and daughters, for they will lead your children away from me to worship other gods.”
Deuteronomy 7:3-4 (NLT)

“We also promise that if the people of the land should bring any merchandise or grain to be sold on the Sabbath or on any other holy day, we will refuse to buy it."
Nehemiah 10:31 (NLT)

“Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the LORD your God has commanded you.”

Deuteronomy 5:15 (NLT)

“We promise together not to neglect the Temple of our God.”
Nehemiah 10:39 (NLT)

“And be very careful never to neglect the Levites as long as you live in your land.”
Deuteronomy 12:19 (NLT)

“Why has the Temple of God been neglected?”
Nehemiah 13:11 (NLT)

“Why are you profaning the Sabbath in this evil way?”
Nehemiah 13:11 (NLT)

“How could you even think of committing this sinful deed and acting unfaithfully toward God by marrying foreign women?”

Peter declared, “Even if everyone else deserts you, I will never desert you.”
Matthew 26:33 (NLT)

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
Matthew 6:33 (NLT)

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT)

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT)

GOD’S NOT INTERESTED IN WHAT YOU CAN DO, HE WANTS YOU TO SEE ALL HE CAN DO
