Teaching: The Book of Nehemiah
The book of Nehemiah tells us the story of Nehemiah who was convicted about the mission that God gave him. He first had the courage to remind his people that they were stuck. “Here is horrible, and we can’t afford to stay here, in horrible.” Then Nehemiah challenged, encouraged, gave focus, sacrificial commitment, and rallied the people to work together for a common purpose. He experienced backlash from their enemies, but they stayed united. As a result, the people’s civil revival led to a spiritual revival, and their lives were transformed. What would it look like if we were obedient to God’s purpose and mission for our own lives?
The name “Lectio Divina” is Latin for “Divine Reading”. This practice is not just used for studying Scripture; it is used to hear from God. In Lectio Divina, you allow the scripture to study you as you sit with the text in God’s presence. Lectio Divina creates space for God to speak to you about His word.
