Our first line of defense—365/24/7

The city was in shambles, its buildings and walls torn down, its population unable to protect themselves against outside attackers. This is not a story from a recent TV news broadcast, but from a 2,000-year-old Bible account of a man called Nehemiah who decided to do what he could to help (see Neh., chaps. 1-7).

It all began with a vision that God had "put into [Nehemiah's] heart"—to rebuild the walls of his hometown, Jerusalem. In the months to come, he would have to defend the realization of this vision physically, mentally, and spiritually.
