Duration:32 mins 29 secs
Revived Stones #7: Lessons from the Book of Nehemiah

Nehemiah's 3 Steps...
 
1. He enlists new leadership
  • If God's people do not protect what they accomplished for the Lord, the enemy will come in and try to take it over.
  • Luke 11:24-26; Ephesians 6:10-13
2. He establishes citizenship.
  • The point of all of this is NOT to count people but to show that people count.
3. He encouraged worship.
  • What began with concern, led to construction and conflict, and now it is time for consecration.
  • People are important to God!!!
Psalm 11:3, "if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"
  • The answer: The righteous can rebuild what has been torn down and start over again.
  • YOU can start over again.
Nehemiah 8:1-3
  • Something was missing in Jerusalem.
  • It is not enough to have a well-constructed superstructure if there is little or no life on the inside.
  • What happens on the inside and outside of the walls is by far the most important thing of all.
Nehemiah 8:4-8 – Revival begins with the proclamation of Scripture.

What we have seen so far...
  • There was a reading of God's word.
  • There was an obvious respect for the truth.
  • The truth was explained so that all who hard could understand.
  • The truth was applied and those who heard it responded.
Nehemiah 8:10-12
  • Nehemiah lets them know for certain...God Never Left
  • God stands with open arms ready to forgive and ready to receive them back.
