The entire purpose of this sermon is to show you the importance of getting connected into groups. The importance of community is a principle that applies to you whether you believe it or not. In Ecclesiastes 4, King Solomon teaches why it is important to be surrounded in community. Two people can work better than one can by themselves. When one per…
 
When we hear a call to justice, we are often stirred up in emotion, as we all believe that service to the marginalized and vulnerable is important. Yet, we don’t often have a sustained sense of immediacy towards such passions; we have difficulty having obedience in the same direction over a long period of time. What we find when it comes to having …
 
God’s people are called to apply pressure to places that are devoid of His justice. We are commissioned to be God’s representatives for justice on Earth.We can often use politics and other guises to hide behind the call we have to administer justice. The injustice we see in the world should bother us. In Nehemiah chapter 5, Nehemiah fights injustic…
 
Most of us see other people’s needs to gain more resiliency, but can be blind to our own. We have a tendency to quit on tasks in the “messy middle” once we’ve gotten tired from the work we’ve already done, but the end is not yet in sight.

However, it’s hard to overstate the significance that the people of God actually began to do the work that God called them to. We have, for far too long, lacked meaningful engagement in the work of Go…
 
We often believe that influence is based on position or opinion. The person with the highest position of authority or with the most extreme opinion are often seen as the most influential. However, we gain true influence through our actions that add value to others. Nehemiah models how to influence others by acting in a way that adds value to others…
 
There’s a dichotomy that every influencer has to face, we must be patient and prayerful, but not passive. People who excel at patience also tend to be passive. Conversely, people who aren’t passive also tend to not be patient. In scripture God often gives a burden or calling in a way that requires patience before action. Yet, when the patient perso…
 
We are, as Christians, called to be influencers in our culture and our world. But how do we define influence? If society's influence is defined by the impressiveness of who is influencing, how does Jesus define it? With this series, Uncommon Influencers, we will break down the book of Nehemiah to learn what Scripture tells us influence looks like.…
