In Nehemiah ch.10, after the temple and walls were rebuilt, they read the word of God. In it they saw that they hadn’t kept His commandments for a long time. They wept and repented before the Lord. The Israelites began keeping the feast before the Lord. Then Nehemiah saw that the temple needed to be put in order. He began with the priests and levites. Then he gathered all the supplies for the temple and sheep, cattle and wood. All according as God had directed in His word. We are the temple of God. As such, we had to sweep and clean our temple as God directs us. We gather our supplies and store them in our temple. We do this against that day when someone asks us why we believe. Getting our house in order is a lifetime’s worth of work.
