Nehemiah 4: 7-23 "We Got Trouble in River City"
The trouble is the Jordan River City. The opposition to the rebuilding is not going away.
Nehemiah 4: 1-6
As they rebuild the walls, Nehemiah and the other are mocked by their enemies. They prayed to ask God to intervene on their behalf.
Nehemiah 3 "Repairing the Walls"
Chapter 3 gives a rich emphasis to the singularity of the task of repairing the walls but one accomplished by a striking diversity of workers.
Nehemiah 2: 11-20
Nehemiah is in Jerusalem. He begins to set into motion God's plan for the rebuilding of the city.
Nehemiah 2: 1-10
Nehemiah's next steps for a new start include prayer and study. And his actions bring about a big risk, a big reward, a big responsibility and a big reaction from Israel's enemies.
Nehemiah 1 Introduction
The book of Nehemiah is a real life, historical account of a new start made under very tough conditions with enemies, a record of failures, threats from outside forces, corruption from within and more.
The Uniqueness & Superiority of Jesus as the High Priest
In Hebrews 4:14 - 5:10, the writer expands on Jesus as a high priest, underscoring Jesus' unique priestly role, His sympathy for human frailties, the fullness of His mercy, and the completeness of Jesus' sacrifice for sin.
What's Needed for an Active Christianity?
From his personal experience as the Director for nearly 30 years of Vital Signs Ministries, Denny shares those key virtues needed for effective Christian service in any and all Christian endeavors.
An Enlightening Prayer
Paul teaches in Ephesians 1: 15-23 how to pray. He shows us that before we can become apostles we have to have a solid understanding of who we are in Jesus Christ.
Turning Sheep into Shepherds
This is a passage that allows us to see more clearly the applications of last week's lesson, especially as it involves the transition of disciples into doers...sheep into shepherds.
