We’re called to be disciples who disciple. We work at the kingdom of God aware of imminent spiritual attack at all times with a sword in one hand, and a trowel in the other - Prayer & Preparedness! We are called to build each other up in the faith, working as a spiritual community, so in our overall calling to reach the People Groups of the world, we must work towards our own spiritual formation together through the very practical means of discipling one another. Let’s see how Nehemiah 4 reflects all this.

Churches die when people expect all ministry to be done by ‘the church’ or by ‘the clergy’. Ministry is a communal effort, where we serve organically & work together well realizing God has strategically place us in this place to finish the task of kingdom building. Therefore, churches thrive when everyone sees themselves as a contributing part of the church, and acts accordingly.

In Nehemiah 2 we see Nehemiah as a man of Burden, Credibility, Prayer & Faithful Action. God has laid a foundation for this great work ahead of him, and Nehemiah in trust walks through the open doors God provides despite opposition & threat. What can we learn from a man like this in our own church context?

This is the start of our series exploring the work of Nehemiah, who was called back to Jerusalem to rebuild the walls. The city lay bare to attack, and from this we draw parallels to our lives. How we have broken down walls, and are now open to harmful attack. We need to develop steps to rebuild in order to set healthy boundaries in life. Walls to guard our hearts in good ways & allow the right people through their gates in healthy life-giving ways. Join us in the coming weeks as we explore this book thoroughly.
