Eliashib the high priest and his fellow priests went to work and rebuilt the Sheep Gate. They dedicated it and set its doors in place, building as far as the Tower of the Hundred, which they dedicated, and as far as the Tower of Hananel. The men of Jericho built the adjoining section, and Zakkur son of Imri built next to them. The Fish Gate was rebuilt by the sons of Hassenaah. They laid its beams and put its doors and bolts and bars in place.


Nehemiah 3: 1-3

Introduction:

  • Nehemiah 3 is about getting down to the work and doing it together.

  • Revival can only work when prayer, preparation and action come together.


Put God First

  • The Israelites dedicated the wall to God before the work started as a reminder to put God first in all they do.

  • Be grateful and thankful for what God is doing for us here.

  • Before going out to do God’s work, we must remember the purpose behind the work.

  • We can miss the supernatural work of God infront of us if we carry an ungrateful heart with us.

  • Building revival in YM begins with putting God first in recognizing what God is doing here.


Be Open to be Used by God

  • The Israelites who participated in building the wall were not skilled in building. They were just available. God is always looking for availability

  • There is no role in the kingdom of God that we are too insignificant to do.

  • God is not looking for people who are destroyers, complainers or spectators. He is looking for people who are part of the solution.


There is Power in Community

  • When the Israelites played their each of their individual role, the big picture of rebuilding the wall came to pass

  • There is power when each of us play our role in a community. There is a corporate assignment for us.

  • When we collectively come together, we can build revival in YM.


Conclusion:

  • God is looking for someone to partner with to build and to take it to the next level

  • We are so important in building revival in YM again.
