Wanted: City Slickers

Passage: Nehemiah 11

Preacher: Derrick McCarson

Series: Building and Battling: Nehemiah

Category: Nehemiah


Even though the walls were rebuilt, Nehemiah had to convince people to move out of the country and into the city. He wanted to see God’s people and God’s temple thrive again—and that would require gentrification and massive urban renewal. Since chapter 8 we’ve read how the people experienced a spiritual awakening. Using that momentum of renewed commitment to the Lord, Nehemiah was able to lead God’s people in a new direction. In Nehemiah’s leadership of repopulating the city, we see several applications for the church.
