Neh. 13:14 “Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and do not blot out my loyal deeds, which I have done for the house of my God and for its services.”




Nehemiah loved God, and he loved God’s interest on earth concerning His economy. This interest included the good land, the temple, and the city of Jerusalem. Even though he was a common person without a rank such as that of a king or of a captain in the army, he took care of God’s interest on earth. Nehemiah was also one who always prayed to God to contact God in fellowship. Furthermore, Nehemiah was a person who trusted in God and who was one with God. Burdens were placed upon his shoulder by God, but in bearing these burdens he trusted in God. Nehemiah knew that the good hand of God was upon him, and he asked God to remember him. This indicates that he trusted in God and was one with God.


In his relationship with the people, Nehemiah was altogether unselfish. Even though he was actually the acting king of Judah, he never sought anything for himself. He was always willing to sacrifice what he had for the people and for the nation. He was the governor, but he did not take any compensation for twelve years. Instead of receiving compensation, he provided for the daily necessities of more than one hundred fifty men. Nehemiah also was among those who were ready to fight against the enemy, and he took part in the night watch. He did not leave these matters to others but participated in them himself. Nehemiah was the best example of what an elder should be. (Life-study of Nehemiah, msg. 5)
