Sermons about Tobias
In Nehemiah, the nobles of Jerusalem chose to cling to the comfort and safety of their political alliances and missed the glory of God which stood so clearly in their midst. They feared the glory of God because they knew that to see it would cause them to fall greatly in their own esteem. However, by missing out on the glory of God, the nobles foolishly traded their own eternal joy for what seemed to be an economically wise relationship at the time. Today, we too have the opportunity to see the glory of God and experience the amazing joy that comes as we fall in our own esteem and yet realize that the God of the universe is for us. He is our advocate, our savior, our refuge, our creator, and our friend; and beholding his glory can fill our lives with joy, truth, meaning, and purpose. We must be vigilant not to make the same mistake as the nobles of Jerusalem and trade his glory for lesser things.
