Thoughts on Sin

Posted by Riley Roberson on

Too often, I fall into the trap of thinking my sin is momentary and conquerable. If I forget about it, it’s not there. Or if I try hard enough, it’ll go away. Those things aren’t true. I sin, but I forget that sin isn’t just weak moments or inappropriate actions. Sin is...

Breaking the Cycle

Posted by Scott Hiney on

It’s been said that the definition of insanity is repeating the same behaviors and expecting a different outcome. Whoever first said this must’ve studied the Hebrew people extensively. In Nehemiah, we’ve followed the physical rebuilding of Jerusalem but come to understand the...

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 Prewitt 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...

Strengthening Our Walls

Posted by Rebecca Spence on

“…Will they revive the stones out of the heaps of rubbish, and the burned ones at that?” — Nehemiah 4:2 Sometimes our lives become heaps of rubbish. What was once a beautiful, pristine wall of our own making turns into a pile of burned bricks of our own doing. One of...

Stepping Out

Posted by Joe Paris on

Do you remember that story in the Bible where the disciples are going across the sea of Galilee, and Jesus is seen walking on water? The disciples are freaked out because they have no idea who or what is coming towards them. At first, they assume it is a ghost. Immediately, Jesus reveals himself...

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...
