Rebuilding Through Worship
November 19, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 12:27–47
In Nehemiah 12, we get a picture of the Israelites worshipping after they have finished rebuilding. The way that they engage in this worship as a community is notable in a few specific ways, and they help to inform how we should engage in worship in our church today. Listen to this message from Pastor Jay and be reminded of what true worship is.
Rebuilding Through Prayer
November 5, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 9:1–37
In Nehemiah chapter 9, we see the nation of Israel come together before the Lord to pray, offering praise, confession, thanksgiving, and petition to God. How does this time of unified prayer contribute to the overall rebuilding effort that Nehemiah is leading all throughout this book? We see that prayer is absolutely essential for the unification and growth of God's people - even for us today.
Rebuilding Through The Word
October 29, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 8
In chapter 8 of Nehemiah, the Word of God was brought before the people. It was a time of worship and reverence as they remembered who they were called to be as God's people. How do we respond to the Word? Has it become commonplace for us or does it inspire and bring life?
Stay The Course
October 15, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 6:1–16
When we face spiritual opposition, what do we do? Nehemiah faced opposition, but he was able to "stay the course" and keep his focus on the mission. Let this message encourage you in keeping your eyes on the Lord, even when the enemy tries to distract you from what God is doing through you.
October 8, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 5
As Nehemiah was working to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, he was also working to refocus the Israelites on what is good and right. They had begun to live with a self-focused mentality that did not place God and others first - something that is still so prevalent today. What can we learn from this story to apply to our lives today?
September 24, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 4
What do we do when we face opposition? In particular, what do we do when we face spiritual opposition? Nehemiah offers some profound wisdom on this topic, as he faced significant opposition in his mission of rebuilding the wall in Jerusalem.
September 17, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 3
After arriving and assessing the damage, Nehemiah begins the process of rebuilding the wall. This is not a solo task, however, as many other people come together and use their gifts to achieve the goal. What does this say about God's mission? How does this affect as a church body? Take a listen.
Casting The Vision
September 10, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 2:9–20
After receiving the blessing of King Artaxerxes, Nehemiah goes to Jerusalem to assess the damage and figure out a plan. All the while, he is facing opposition from officials in the area. Rather than rely on his own vision and strength to accomplish the task, Nehemiah looked to the Lord for these things. What can we learn from this to apply to our lives today? Listen to this relevant word from Pastor Jay.
Where Restoration Begins
August 27, 2023 • Jay Hardwick • Nehemiah 1
As we begin our series through the book of Nehemiah, we take a look at the first chapter, where Nehemiah sees the broken condition of his people and is burdened to take action. What can we learn from this story that is applicable to our lives today?
