Living by the Word of our Powerful God (Nehemiah 13)

Living by the Word of our Powerful God

Nehemiah 13

(Reading 13:1-13)

Another messy ending!

Neither Ezra nor Nehemiah could change people’s hearts – only Jesus can do that

What else can we learn from their attempt to live by the word of our powerful God?

Christian Marriage (1 Cor 7:1-24) – NightChurch

Christian Marriage (Part 1)

Reading: 1 Corinthians 7:1-24

1: God has given “gifts” to all Christians (v. 7)

– What they are

– What they aren’t

2: Paul addresses questions about marriage…

3: …but being a faithful follower of Jesus is what really matters

(Preacher: Stephen Young)

Sex and Freedom (1 Cor 6) – NightChurch

Sex and Freedom

1 Corinthians 6

1: How things END… should affect how you live NOW

Paul provides two examples in 1 Cor 6:

a) Christian Lawsuits

b) Sexual Immorality

2: God also wants you to live differently because:

– you have been washed, sanctified and justified (v. 11)

– your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit (v. 19)

– you were bought at a price (v. 20)

(Preacher: Stephen Young)

God’s Word and Holiness (Ezra 9-10)

God’s Word and Holiness

Ezra 9-10

God’s people show deep faithlessness… (9:1-2)

…and the mess is complex to unravel (9:3-10:44)

Holiness and faithfulness still matter for Christians

though much has changed…

…God remains the same
