Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
“Though fear had come upon them because of the people of those countries, they set the altar on its bases; and they offered burnt offerings on it to the Lord…” (Ezra 3:3). A remnant had finally returned to Jerusalem. They were surrounded by enemies in a now-foreign land, but they had a choice: either hide their faith, or boldly proclaim it and trust that God would protect them. They chose boldness. Though they were afraid, they set up their altars and offered sacrifices to God. New York City can be a daunting place, especially if you spend your week (and most likely occasional weekends) in a non-Christian workplace. You have a choice: hide your faith, or boldly proclaim it. What will you choose?
Father, help me to be a light in the darkness. Help me to share the gospel intelligently and boldly in my place of business. I am a city on a hill, showing the goodness of Your gospel to the world!
