Rebuilding through WorshipStuart Jones At some point rebuilding is complete; the work is done. Nehemiah and his people worked tirelessly and completed their rebuilding, but they were not done. The stones had been placed, the gates were repaired and the walls stood again. Their work was more than masonry and stones and walls and gates. Rebuilding, whether it involves walls or our lives, is not done until the work is acknowledged. For Nehemiah, acknowledgement came in the form of a dedication and worship. This dedication with open and public worship connected the people to the work and ultimately to their God.
