The Practice of Peacemaking
Rebuilt: Truths from Nehemiah to Build Your Life On, Part 5
As the story of Nehemiah unfolds in the fifth chapter, we learn of internal strife. Sadly, some of the strongest opposition to God’s work isn’t from external forces, it’s from within the ranks of His people. All of us, leaders included, have a God-given responsibility to deal with sinful attitudes & behaviors in a manner that promotes real peace. God’s Word doesn’t leave us in the dark. We’re given instructions and examples of how it’s to be done. This week, we’ll examine the practice of a peacemaker. Nehemiah reveals timeless truths of how we can protect and preserve unity within our ranks by applying peacemaking principles.
