Ezra

Restored, Rebuilt & Reformed

14 July 2019
RETURN TO GOD
EZRA 10:1-17
by Tan Huai Tze

At the heart of the Book of Ezra is a call to return to right relationship with God. Ezra leads this return by being an example of contriteness and grieving over sin. The people respond, taking personal responsibility for their own sin, and urging Ezra to lead them in repentance. Repentance, we discover is a community affair. Just like the Israelites, we also need the community of God’s people to help us put sin to death.

ANATOMY OF REPENTANCE
EZRA 9:1-15
by Tan Huai Tze

The worship of God has been restored (Ezra 1-6) and the place of the word of God has been re-established (Ezra 7-8), but God’s people are still living in sin. So the  just and merciful God calls his people to repentance. God’s people hear his word with trembling, confess their sins and recognise his grace, and then they plead for mercy. This side of the cross, we can rejoice because Christ has made an end of all our sin.

THE GOOD HAND OF OUR GOD MOVES
EZRA 8:1-36
by Wong Yann

It it easy to see the hand of God when God moves in supernatural extraordinary ways. But can we see God when he moves in more ordinary and unremarkable ways? See how the hand of God moves in the story of Ezra as he prepares to move the Jews from Babylon to Jerusalem in Ezra 8.

PROMISES FULFILLED, WORSHIP RESTORED
EZRA 6:1-22
by Aaron Akins

Ezra 6 completes the restoration of temple worship for the Israelite exiles. Though the rebuilding project was supported by kings and commanded by prophets, the ultimate provider of a new temple was God himself. The people of God respond to this act of grace with worship that is glorifying to God, and points forward to a greater temple yet to come - Jesus Christ.

RELATING TO THE WORLD
EZRA 5:1-17
by Tan Huai Tze

God’s people are called to neither separate nor assimilate with the world, but rather to be a faithful witness: the be fully engaged with the culture while remaining spiritually distinct. To do that, we need to listen carefully to the Word of God, letting it shape our hearts and lives. And then, we reflect God’s ways in the world.

Relating to the World - Tan Huai Tze

STEADFAST IN OPPOSITION
EZRA 4:1-24
by Tan Huai Tze

God’s work on earth through his people will be opposed by his and their enemies. Here, we learn that opposition can come in the form of deception, discouragement, and delay. God’s people are called to persevere, trusting that what God has said, he will do.

RESTORING WORSHIP
EZRA 3:1-13
by Tan Huai Tze

God’s people, restored to their land after 70 years, made the worship of God their priority. Worshipping God put everything else they had to do in proper perspective. We too as God’s people are called to worship God first so that everything else in our lives becomes a gift from him.

THE RESTORING COMMUNITY
EZRA 2:1-70
by Tan Huai Tze

God restores a distinct, diverse and devoted community to rebuild the physical temple in Jerusalem. Today, God’s temple is spiritual, it is the community of God’s people called the church. We too are called to be a distinct, diverse and devoted community, an agent of God’s blessing and light to the nations.

THE CALL TO RESTORE TRUE WORSHIP
EZRA 1:1-11
by Wong Yann

The book of Ezra opens with God stirring the hearts of King Cyrus and the exiled Jews, so that the Jews can return to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple and restore true worship. What does restoring True Worship look like in today's context?
