The King’s Cupbearer


Nehemiah is the story of a cupbearer to the king. His role was to taste the wine before the king drank it. If someone tried to poison the king, the cupbearer played a vital part of service and sacrifice. He held one of the most important and influential positions in the kingdom. Yet in the opening chapters we read about a great burden that is on the heart of Nehemiah. The city walls of Jerusalem are down, and God has called him to rise up and rebuild.

The story that unfolds is one of courage, conviction, sin, struggle and success. Leading in a time of great uncertainty and opposition, Nehemiah learns what it means to lead after God and before His people.
