Becoming God’s Builder
I also told them about the gracious hand of my God on me and what the king had said to me. They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work. Nehemiah 2: 18
You and I are the Workers/Builders (instruments or tools) God has chosen to use to “Build up” or “Rebuild His Kingdom”
- The Work is VOLUNTARY
- God knows His Builders by name
- God’s Builders are TEAM PLAYERS
- Everyone has SOMETHING to offer
- Some builders are willing to work outside their areas of strength.
- Some work STINKS but is necessary
- Rebuilding starts at HOME
