The Power of United Purpose
Our text today reveals;
1. A powerful miracle.
- The opposition that Nehemiah and the Jews faced was too fierce for them to overcome it in their own strength.
- When you consider the Jews constructing the wall out of rubble, it must have been a powerful miracle.
- Many different people worked with the abilities they had to use, and God used their efforts to build the wall.
2. A powerful method.
- They were united in their purpose.
- There is so much to do, and there is so much that we can do, if we will just do it together.
- Another part of a powerful method is a vision of what we are to accomplish.
- In times of discouragement and fear, we need to be reminded to turn to God through prayer and through His word.
- Philippians 4:8
- Luke 18:1
3. A powerful mind.
- We can implement our ministry plans if we have a mind to work.
- Nehemiah 4:6
- Ecclesiastes 9:10
- How often are we that eager to do the Lord's work? What a difference it would make!
