Nehemiah — Helping to Build the Kingdom of God
About the day
The Well is about creating a place for people to encounter the healing power of God. At this special Men’s Event we want to offer men the chance to come together, with time to reflect on the challenges they face. This day will be led by Mark Askew, from The Well Team.
Theme and reflection
Nehemiah arrived in Jerusalem in 444 B.C., about 13 years after Ezra had returned there. He was a great leader whom God used to pull off a phenomenal feat: he instilled a vision in God’s remnant in Jerusalem to rebuild the walls of the city.
In spite of much opposition and numerous hurdles, they accomplished the task in just 52 days. The temple had been rebuilt for about 70 years, but the walls that Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed in 586 B.C. were still in ruins, leaving the city defenceless against enemy attacks.
Nehemiah was devastated. He wept, mourned, fasted, and prayed for days, entreating God to do something about these deplorable conditions. God responded by doing something—through Nehemiah!
During this event we will learn about the various aspects of his character which were significant in enabling him to face and overcome many challenges. As we apply these principles we shall grow as men of God, who will be able to fulfil His purpose for our lives and help to build the Kingdom of God here on earth.
The three talks will be
- SINGLEMINDED – how to find your place in the big picture
- BALANCED – how to be a human being as well as a human doing
- VICTORIOUS – how to recognise and resist the enemy
