Nehemiah Part 5 - Nehemiah 5:1-19

March 6, 2016 • Bert Alcorn

The people of Israel cried out because of the oppression from within the people of God. Nobles and officials were exacting crushing interest and bankrupting their brothers and sisters, forcing them to go into slavery. Nehemiah roots out the sin of the people, calls them to repentance and strive for holiness, and shows them how to live in their restored identity as God’s people. KEY TEXTS: Nehemiah 5:1-19; Deuteronomy 28:15, 32-33; Leviticus 25:35-37; Ephesians 4:17-24

Through the story of God’s people in Nehemiah, we learn that our foundation and motivation for worship is the finished work of Christ securing our identity in him and the more we are saturated in the story of God, the greater our capacity and desire is to worship God with our lives. Nehemiah 11:1-12:47; Exodus 6:6-8

Nehemiah Part 10 - Nehemiah 9:38-10:39

As the people of God are reminded of the story of God it leads them to recommit to the obligations of the covenant, which includes observance of the law, giving, worship, commitment to a holy identity, Sabbath observance, and contribution to the priests/temple. As we understand the story of God and who we are in Christ, it compels us to live a life reflecting the goodness and grace of God.
