The Return of Nehemiah (Talking Points for Sunday A.M. 9/92012)

From Nehemiah 1:

Too often "revival" is a planned event, a mere "flash in the pan" with no long term consequence.  Nehemiah's return to God, his revival, was foundational not merely a flashpoint.  His return to God began the process of rebuilding a nation.  How do we experience revival that is more foundational than flashpoint?  For revival to have a long-term impact on a people and a community we must understand the nature of returning.

  • Returning begins with confession out of brokenness.
  • Returning is based in Scripture.
  • Returning is born out of constant prayer.
  • Returning brings us back from the extremes.
  • Returning is a beginning, not an end in itself.
