Rebuilding the Wall

Click Here to Listen to the Sermon for Sunday, January 01, 2012 by Pastor Rodger S. Loar

Scripture Reference: Nehemiah 8:10, Romans 8:28, 2Samuel 11:1-27

 Is God at Work in Your Life?
As we read Nehemiah, we see that God can work through non-believers to accomplish His goals.  And, He can definitely use believers to accomplish His goals.  God was at work in this world, helping the Jews get back to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple, rebuild the wall, and rebuild the city.  God was at work in history and God is at work today.

That’s right, He is at work in your life today.  Did you know that?  Have you stopped to notice what He is doing?
This year, we are rebuilding.  We, at MVCC, are working on rebuilding our church body and rebuilding the individuals within.  This year, we invite you to take notice that God is at work in you and He is at work in us.

Like Nehemiah, we may look at this task as daunting, but it can be done.  Like Nehemiah, we will have threats from the outside, people who don’t like faith, don’t like Christians, and don’t want to hear from us.  We will also deal with threats from the inside: gossips, complainers, and the like.  But we are God’s people and we know that He is at work, so we just need to look for the places that He is at work and join Him!
Make a commitment this year to turn back to God, to rebuild your relationship with Him, and to become active in the work that needs to be done.
