Nehemiah 1:1-10

Annoyed woman, stop itThe main reasons why many Christians are unconcerned include:

  • No passionate intimacy with God, no real relationship to hear from Him
  • Ignorance, no reality of God’s agenda-many messed up and confused
  • Lack of real faith in God, mental belief but never experienced the real work of God in our hearts
  • Dependence on man’s methods and self- sufficient in our terms; blinded spiritually
  • Ever living on past victory, past revelation and past testimony
  • Never thirsty, much for the head but our hearts empty
  • Mistaken maturity without real spiritual fruit
  • Absence of tears, things of God never affect us-many easily offended and ever ready to quit

Christianity is a life of relationship and fellowship. Following Christ means love and service expressed through social relations. True social relationship is found in the church. There is a visible and an invisible church. The invisible church is made up of true believers down through the centuries since Pentecost. The visible church is made up of various denominations on earth today.

Nehemiah 1:1-10 New King James Version (NKJV)

Nehemiah Prays for His People
1 The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. It came to pass in the month of Chislev, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan[a] the citadel, 2 that Hanani one of my brethren came with men from Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews who had escaped, who had survived the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. 3 And they said to me, “The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire.”

4 So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.

5 And I said: “I pray, Lord God of heaven, O great and awesome God, You who keep Your covenant and mercy with those who love You[b] and observe Your[c] commandments, 6 please let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open, that You may hear the prayer of Your servant which I pray before You now, day and night, for the children of Israel Your servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel which we have sinned against You. Both my father’s house and I have sinned. 7 We have acted very corruptly against You, and have not kept the commandments, the statutes, nor the ordinances which You commanded Your servant Moses. 8 Remember, I pray, the word that You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations;[d] 9 but if you return to Me, and keep My commandments and do them, though some of you were cast out to the farthest part of the heavens, yet I will gather them from there, and bring them to the place which I have chosen as a dwelling for My name.’[e] 10 Now these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your great power, and by Your strong hand.
