Sunday “Morning” Review: Nehemiah 11:1-36 April 25, 2010

Filed under: Church,Sunday Morning Review — katiereich @ 3:23 pm

Last night Josh preached through Nehemiah 11, another list of names! He started by asking the question that we usually ask ourselves, What do I do now? What is the next step for me in my relationship with Jesus? In the Bible Paul equates our spiritual life to the progression of our lifestages. As an infant you cannot feed yourself, but must be fed… each stage is unique, but the hard part comes when it is time to let go of what is comfortable and give up those things to get to the next stage. In life stages it is almost forced upon you, but in your spiritual life you have to be ok with it. Too often we are paralyzed in taking the next step because it hurts, or is uncomfortable so we do not believe that it is from God. We too often stay in our “safe place” and wonder where God is. In Nehemiah 11 Josh shows us how the leaders left their comfort and took the huge risk to move into the city… The individuals listed were people from surrounding villages who moved into the city as well. Instead of waiting for God to call them to the easy normal thing, they followed God on his mission, not their own, and by doing that the church reached outside the walls of the city and created a church with a regional mindset…

Listen to the sermon here for more… and be sure to check out Josh’s blog for the next big step that we are taking as a church.
