The gracious hand of his God
… was on him, because Ezra had determined in his heart to study the law of the Lord, obey it, and teach its statutes and ordinances in Israel. (Ezra 7:10 HCSB)
Ezra had a living faith.
Ezra was getting God's best because he was diligent, responsible, humble, and single-minded to learn what God had written. And Ezra lived it out. Not just talk, but walk. Then he taught others how to do the same. What value is it to learn somethng as precious as God's very own Words, and not share it?
Living faith: Know. Do. Teach.
What a great and Godly example to follow.
