This past Sunday the kids were reminded how God’s Word is powerful. When Ezra read God’s Word, the people changed their ways and loved God more. The Bible says that Jesus is “the Word.” Jesus is God the Son who came to live with people on earth. Jesus has the power to change our hearts.Men, women, and children gathered to listen to Ezra read the law. From early morning to midday, Ezra read from the book of the law of Moses. He stood on a platform so everyone could see and hear him. The Levites helped people understand the law. When the people understood, they wept. Ezra told the people not to cry, for the joy of the Lord is their strength. Yes, the people had sinned, but God would keep His promise to forgive.
