The Sword, the Trowel, & D’rusalem
Because opposition is not optional for those who follow Jesus, you must be both a lover & a fighter, just like Jesus. As Nehemiah leads the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem he is opposed. Nehemiah not only highlights the truth that opposition is inevitable if you will follow God, he also shows us how to respond to opposition – keep your hand on the trowel and grab a sword! You can check out this message from Nehemiah 4 here.
Just before the message Matt Golden presented a spoken word piece called “D’rusalem. Wow! Not only was this a great sermon intro for Nehemiah 4, it was a powerful message in itself. You can listen here or watch the video below.
Saturday we had the privilege of hosting our first wedding on the Restore property. 300 people gathered on the recently acquired side lot as we celebrated God’s gift of marriage. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Bovan!
