The clear and repeated teaching of Scripture is that Christ is sufficient. He is sufficient to save and sufficient to live His Life in and through us. In other words, He is all we need for the Christian life. At the same time that this is true, it is also true that we are active participants in all that He does in our lives. How are these both true? These truths work together in the book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah recounts the historical rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem and also of a community-wide revival through the reading and teaching of God’s Word. With opposition all around, Nehemiah recalls how they trusted the Lord to defend them as they fought. They prayed while they set up a defence. God did a work in their hearts as they returned to the Scriptures. Together, we will explore the reality of God’s activity and how that relates to our participation.
