Foundation Day

‘The twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, in the second-year of Darius’ is ‘foundation day’ for this small group of returned exiles from God’s mob. On this day, the foundation was laid for the Temple – and God’s people were called to ‘consider carefully’. The ‘word of the LORD’ cast their minds back to the days they had ‘enjoyed’ since their return. The ‘word of the LORD’ focused their minds on ‘from this day forward’. And the ‘word of the LORD’ looked towards the future of ‘that day’. At the heart of this ‘consider carefully’ was the overflowing of God’s kind and generous grace – grace which forgave their sins so that God could dwell with them, so that they could be His people, under His rule(r)!
