Presentation Transcript

  1. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) I. Nehemiah Hears About The Broken Wall (Nehemiah 1:1-11). • The New Testament Describes Christians as “living stones.” (I Peter 2:4-5). Do We Care about the Strength or Wellbeing of this Spiritual House?

  2. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) II. Nehemiah is Sad in the Presence of Artaxerxes. (Nehemiah 2:1-10). • Do we care so little about the Lord’s Spiritual House that we... • Are afraid to tell our friends what we believe?  • Are afraid to make attendance a priority?  • Are afraid to tell our employer we will not work during a time of services? (Matthew 10:32-33).

  3. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) III. Nehemiah Views the Walls and Reveals His Plan (Neh. 2:11-20). • It is easy to imagine that spiritual growth comes through monumental efforts. • In Scripture spiritual growth is a very personal, simple thing that comes from individuals choosing to submit themselves to Christ (I Corinthians 3:5-11; Isaiah 55:11).

  4. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) IV. All The People Work to Rebuild the Wall. (Nehemiah 3:1-32). • What is the point of this chapter? • These were not all political leaders, military leaders, religious leaders, wealthy people, popular people, or people trained in masonry, architecture, or carpentry. But they were useful and effective because they were God’s people! (I Corinthians 12:12-18).

  5. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) V. The Enemies Mock the Work. (Nehemiah 4:1-3). • A. They did the same to Jesus. (Matthew 27:29-31).

  6. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) VI. All The People Worked to Defend the Wall. • They Prayed to God. (Nehemiah 4:4-5). • They Had a Mind to Work. (Nehemiah 4:6). • They Worked in the Midst of Opposition and Rubbish. (Nehemiah 4:7-12).   • Exposing false doctrine is necessary to clear away the rubble of past collapses (I John 4:1). 

  7. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) VI. All The People Worked to Defend the Wall. • They Armed Themselves. (Nehemiah 4:13-18). • The Word is our Sword (Hebrews 4:12-13). • Doing Right is our Armor (Ephesians 6:10-17).

  8. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) VI. All The People Worked to Defend the Wall. • They Stayed Close to the Wall (Neh. 4:19-23). We must stay close the spiritual walls… • Not by looking for excuses to miss services.  • Not by failing to study God’s word.  • But by refusing to allow anyone or anything to keep us from our God-given task of defending the wall! (Hebrews 10:23-25).

  9. “For the People Had a Mind to Work” (Nehemiah 4:6) VII. The Wall Was Completed. (Nehemiah 6:15,16).
