We come to the end of Nehemiah and sadly what we find is the people are going against the Lord in the very ways that they had said they wouldn't! The book ends with Nehemiah calling people back to the Lord and doing so in dramatic ways - pulling hair! But this chapter is about grace. This Nehemiah community lives not in its own ability, but in the Lord's! We are left at the end of the book having no doubt that their success in the wall and in the rebuilding of their community has nothing to do with them, but only to do with the grace of God.
