    We Promise
    Series: Nehemiah
    Promises aren't worth much if they're not backed up with action. The Israelites were so moved by the Scriptures that they recommitted themselves to obey God's Word. The action they took was to put God first in their time, their money, their work, and their families.

    Rumors and Lies
    Series: Nehemiah
    In an effort to get Nehemiah to stop construction on the wall, his enemies try some dirty tricks. They try to get Nehemiah to meet with them in a far, out-of-the-way place. They try threatening him. They try lying to him and about him. A world that doesn't know or love Jesus will still try to do the same to us.

    Taking and Giving
    Series: Nehemiah
    After Nehemiah led the people to overcome the external and internal opposition, they faced a third. Their community turned against one another because some were taking advantage of the others. As a follower of Jesus, your faith should make a difference in every area of your life. You can’t just say, “church is what I do on Sunday and the rest of the week it’s business as usual.” Committing your life to Christ is a complete change of priorities. The solution was courage and generosity.
