Read: Nehemiah 4-6
Marked: Nehemiah 4:1, But it so happened, when Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, that he was furious and very indignant, and mocked the Jews.
Walls in the Bible are seen as protective, symbols of hope and glorifying God. The Bible certainly does that for the believer.
However, not everyone appreciates that. They see Scripture as being antiquated and out of date and call on the church to change its position on a number of issues and are angered by those who hold fast to Biblical teachings.
But compromise weakens our walls. Changing what the Bible says with regard to sexuality or the centrality of Jesus and His exclusive place in salvation only opens up gaps in the wall God has surrounded us with.
One thought on “Protective Walls…”
Compromise and not believing the Bible does cause the walls to be breached and of no value. The Bible, Jesus, his redemption and the love of God are all needed for the integrity of the wall. I stand on the word of God.
