Time to Celebrate!
The wall and gates of Jerusalem are now rebuilt, the job is done, but how will the people celebrate? In our moment of success, does it matter how we celebrate or should our focus be on God? Nehemiah Chapter 8 offers some helpful guides; to love, to revere, to understand and obey God's word. Nehemiah seems to be saying our praise should be set on God and not ourselves, do you agree?
Sanballat admits defeat!
Nehemiah faced every possible opposition to his calling from God. In the face of it all, he held fast to God, trusted him to protect him and kept on with his work. Every setback, he took to God. In the end, his enemies recognised the greatness of the power at work, and were afraid. We have access to that power. We can be confident in God's protection if we turn to him and trust him to guide us through life. If he is for us, no-one can stand against us.
Pentecost Sunday met the Archbishop of Canterbury’s call to the church to pray. To pray in power, full of the Holy Spirit, out of relationship with Jesus. To pray for those around us with a renewed expectancy. How can we move forward in our faith when we lack confidence or knowledge regarding important issues like prayer? This talk will help us.
Nehemiah's team faces intimidation.
We will always face opposition when we're working on God's projects. But, if we keep our eyes on the goal, working in God's power and with the support of our fellow Christians, we will be successful.
