Nehemiah chapter 2 Deut. 32:30

Connect: Did you ever grow up with a choir? What music do you remember from the 80s and 90s? Have you had a leader that you admired? What did you admire about him?

Engage: What struck you from chapter 2 of Nehemiah? What breaks your heart right now in the world?

There were 3 Parts of Nehemiah

1. Examine
2. Discerninyourheart 3. Conviction

Nehemiah was not okay with the way the city was – Where do we disengage from the world?
Thomas Merton – the Desert Fathers. Is there a place where you need to step away to look at your life?

Psalm 139 – search me oh God – Do you allow God to search to search your heart?
Nehemiah does not jump in and fix – He asks the Lord to look at his life and show him what needs to happen.

Have you ever spent an hour without any noise, what was that like for you?
1 Samuel 30:6 – Where have you been strengthened in your soul?
vs 17 – Let’s build together
God does not call us to lead alone – We need to do it community. Where have you been in community that has done some wonderful?

I Cor. 12:27
John 1:14 – Christ was the greatest leader – walked saw people. Christ invites us to rebuilding not only with ourselves but with others ? What is Christ inviting you too?

Apply: Where have you trusted God when things were hard?
