Nehemiah: Here I Stand

Nehemiah: Here I Stand

Nehemiah and the leaders sign a document saying they will take care of the house of the Lord.  We’re in Nehemiah 10 this week.

Big Picture:
It’s a ‘Here We Stand’ moment – three areas of discipline that we need to practice; This is what we believe – This is how we’re going to live.

Key Points:

  • How I live (Nehemiah 10.29)
    • My worldview will be directed by the things of God.
    • My allegiance is to the Lord and His Commandments.
    • How can you base your worldview on the Bible when you don’t read it?
  • Where I am (Nehemiah 10.31)
    • Where I spend my time says a lot about what I prioritize.
    • We need people in the church to minister to us.
  • What I prioritize (Nehemiah 10.32-33, 39)
    • Prioritize stewardship – what we have is from the Lord.
    • Find ways to serve your neighbor.

Takeaways:

  • Accountability is important.
  • My worldview can’t be influenced by things that I don’t spend time in.

Questions:

    • What drives what comes out of your mouth?
    • What drives your decisions?
    • Is it an overwhelming conviction that God’s Word is true?
