A City within a City

Jesus says a "City on a hill cannot be hidden." Nehemiah lays out the story of the rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem during Israel's exile. In this text Nehemiah gets a tremendous burden for his city and begins to pray hard for it. In this we learn God's heart and vision for cities. We should strive to have the same heart for our city. We must learn, have a burden and then pray for our city. This demeanor will better help us begin to serve the place we live in.
