King Artaxerxes let Ezra go to Jerusalem as stated in Ezra 7 and take any Levites or priests with him.  Also to deliver all the articles entrusted for worship in the temple of God. Ezra was told to appoint law officers and judges to administer justice and teach the laws of God.

Ezra responded with praise to God for the opportunity to bring honor to the house of the Lord; for help in being bold and cheerful. We should have the same attitude because God enables us to do His work and at the end of each day, we should pray and give God all the glory.

God works in history and we should take courage and let God go where we have not gone before. Technology is changing and God can use technology to spread The Word at a much faster pace and Bible study can be done in different ways now.

It’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior, we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing! At this link: God’s Plan for Us is a word document that can be read, downloaded and signed by anyone that would like to accept God’s plan.
