Resolve to Rebuild
A sermon series in Nehemiah
Resolve to Rebuild: Nehemiah
God put it into Nehemiah's heart to start a rebuilding project that would bring glory to God and blessing to God's people. As we study Nehemiah let us pray, "Lord, show me what I need to rebuild, either in my heart, my home, my community, this world, that will bring you glory and will be a blessing to God's people."
'Now I was cupbearer to the king...I took up the wine and gave it to the king. Now I had not been sad in his presence. And the king said to me, “Why is your face sad, seeing you are not sick? This is nothing but sadness of the heart.” Then I was very much afraid. I said to the king, “Let the king live for ever! Why should not my face be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' graves, lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire?” Neh 1:11-2:3
Love God, Love People
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”
