Reference: Ezra 3 v 7-13

  1. A New Dedication—They Rebuilt the Altar (3:5-6)
  2. A New Obedience—They Re-laid the Foundation (3:7-8)
  3. A New Priority—They Resolved to Praise the Lord (3:10-11)

Four life lessons:

  1. Yield your memories and your dreams to the Lord
  2. Accept your present situation as from the Lord
  3. Resolve to obey God right where you are
  4. Praise God for his goodness in spite of your circumstances
