Then the family heads of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and Levites—everyone whose heart God had moved—prepared to go up and build the house of the Lord in Jerusalem.


Ezra 1:5

Introduction: 

  • The king of the land the Israelites were living in, who had no relationship with God, was moved by God to ask people to go back to build the house of the Lord

  • God is a sovereign God who fulfills His purpose through the people in the land


1.   Return and Rebuild Your Walk with God

  • Wake up, focus and go back to God

  • God is stirring all over the world. Are you not sensing the stirring of the Lord?

  • Recognize the stirring of the Lord over your life


2.   Return and Rebuild Your Purpose with God

  • Everyone has a purpose in God. Go back to your calling.

  • Our purpose is to be a blessing. God has put us in our home, school and offices for a reason. Rise up to your calling. 

  • Sense and capture the reason you are placed in these places.

  • Our purpose lies in our obedience to the great commission. That is God’s main calling for us.


3.   Return and Rebuild the Community of God

  • The church is not the temple that we come to build but we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. As we come together, we are building and magnifying the presence of God.

  • The people constitute the temple of God.

  • Come back and build your community. Fight for your CG and fight for your members.

  • Rebuild your small groups. Stir up the passion in one another towards Christ. 


Conclusion:

  1. Rise up, YM FGAKL! Return and rebuild.

  2. You are called to rebuild the kingdom of God

  3. Recognize the stirring of God in your life and go back to your homes, schools, universities and offices. Let the stirring of the Lord fulfill your destiny.
