In Nehemiah eight, we read the account of Ezra reading the law to the people of Israel, who had recently returned from captivity. The people wept when they realized they had missed keeping the Feast of Trumpets, a holy day they were commanded to celebrate by God. They dressed in sackcloth and confessed their sins before the Lord. After they built booths and celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles, they made a post-feast covenant to walk in God’s Law. What application does this event hold for us today?
