Steadfast Love

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

“They refused to obey and were not mindful of the wonders that you performed among them, but they stiffened their neck…But you are a God ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them.” — Nehemiah...

Building Community

Posted by Pat Cooper on

Wouldn’t you agree that Sunday’s sermon was both needed and timely? A thought-provoking message to help us build a spiritually secure wall to take refuge in. Think about this: Nehemiah knew the strength of the wall was not in the brick and mortar, but in the people who built it...

Nehemiah: The Obedient Rebuilder

Posted by Doug Hall on

Nehemiah modeled an example of obedience to God. Nehemiah prayed. When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. — Nehemiah 1:4 Nehemiah was so emotionally distraught about the condition of the people of Judah and...

Walls Don't Rebuild Themselves

Posted by Laci Jackson on

I cannot imagine having the weight of a nation on my shoulders or the task of restoring its glory by building a wall. Get your political mind out of the gutter! I’m obviously referring to Nehemiah and his task of rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. As modern Americans, we can have a hard...

A Powerful Progression

Posted by Steve Glenn on

The first few chapters of Nehemiah show us some solid steps that led to Nehemiah’s success. There is a blueprint embedded in the story that can help us to bear good fruit as children of God. 1. Nehemiah had passion. The first thing that jumps off the pages of Nehemiah to me is the fact...

Purpose, Process and Payoff

Posted by Pat Cooper on

The waiting game: a game no one likes to play, but everyone will. The grocery store checkout line we get in is the fastest one until we roll our cart into it. No brake lights are glowing in the traffic to our right or left until we change lanes. Fast food, convenience stores and one-click buying...

Where Do You Turn?

Posted by Blake Clickner on

As soon as I heard these words I sat down and wept and mourned for days, and I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven. And I said, “O Lord God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his...
