Repentance and Renewal
Nehemiah 9-11 focuses on the repentance and renewal of the Israelites. Throughout history, every revival has been accompanied by deep repentance. Repentance is based on who God is—not who we are, but who we are to Him. Repentance begins with conviction, leads to confession, and results in returning to God. We need to return to and invest in God’s ways because it is God who restores and renews.
