To know God's love, to show God's love

What the Work Requires

It’s one thing to have a dream, it’s another to have the means to make it a reality. Jesus said,

Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it?

Luke 14:28

And so, looking at Ezra 8, and thinking of the work he had in mind – that of beautifying the house of the LORD (Ezra 7:27) – what we’re dealing with is What that Work Required. And what is required, it turns out, was:

  • Authenticity
  • Completeness
  • Extravagance
