This is our last week considering Nehemiah and what we can learn from him about being leaders and people of influence. Today we’ll consider the temptations of leadership. Today’s message is taken from Nehemiah 6.

We open today’s service with a reading from Psalm 149: 1-5.

Lift your voice and sing praises unto God with Hallelujah, Your Love Makes Me Sing, by Brenton Brown and Brian Doerksen.

“So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days.”

Nehemia 6:15

LETTING OTHERS LURE YOU OFF COURSE

  • Nehemiah 6:2 – …on the plain of Ono.” (37 miles from Jerusalem)
  • Nehemiah 6:3

TRYING TO PROVE YOURSELF WITH WORDS

  • Nehemiah 6:9 – Stick to the task and pray.

TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT

  • Nehemiah 6:10
  • Nehemiah 6:11 – “Should a man like me run away? …I will not go.”

16 When all our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God.

Nehemiah 6:16

We close today’s service with this request: Spirit of God, Descend upon My Heart

EXTRA CREDIT

Read Nehemiah, chapter 3 again, and see the wall they built in 52 days with God’s help!
