The Book of Nehemiah reminds us that, even when things seem to be at their worst, there is never a reason for God’s people to throw up their hands and quit. Even in Chapter 13, which deals with separating out those who were forbidden by law to enter into the congregation, Nehemiah saw opportunities rather than obstacles, and was not afraid to face problems head-on. He believed he was doing a great work because he was doing it for the great God. Here is a list of links to the previous lessons on Nehemiah:

1. Petitioning the King
2. Scorn, Schemes, Scoundrels, Schizophrenics, and Scares
3. The Strait Gate and the Wall that Will Not Fall *
4. Defeating Slander, Intimidation, and Discouragement
5. Beware Familial Fidelity
6. Power in Many Voices (Nehemiah 5:7)
7. Just Say (O)No *
8. Learning, Loving, and Living the Word
9. Confession and True Revival
10. The Connection between Giving and Trusting
11. Getting Kicked to the Glory of God
