Nehemiah 4:7-23 — What would it take for us to quit following Christ? How do we endure the opposition that inevitably comes when we try to live as Jesus called us to? Could our view of the Christian life and prayer be hindering rather than helping us? These are the questions we consider as Pastor Brendan continues our study in Nehemiah.
In this lesson we come to a section in the narrative where Israel’s enemies assemble on all sides and threaten to murder the people of Jerusalem. It was critical moment in the rebuilding work and there is much for us to learn in studying Nehemiah’s godly response.
