Pastor Art Azurdia preaching, “Zeal + Sin = Anger” the fourth and final part of Revise Us Again from Nehemiah 13:4-31.
What happens when zeal and sin collide? Here it will erupt in righteous anger.
We see Nehemiah’s explosive collision with sin that closes this book. Nehemiah displays a holy anger at the disregard of God’s holy place, anger against the desecration of God’s holy day, and anger at the disintegration of God’s holy people.
Ultimately, sin and zeal collide at the cross where all human unworthiness and sin is punished in Jesus Christ and the outcome is grace.
