“For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.” – 1 Corinthians 3:9
People matter to God.
Please read that sentence again. The word “people” is purposefully chosen. Of course, people are made up of individual persons and indeed God does care for us individually. However, in this instance, saying that people matter to God highlights the fact that God cares for us collectively as well. He desires His children to be unified. In the Old Testament, He called His nation to be organized around His law and statutes. And today, He calls His Church to work together as an adorning light of gospel mission.
So when we say that people matter to God, the word “people” is plural on purpose. This week, we will be looking at how Nehemiah called the people of God to join together in partnership to fulfill the mission of God. Friends, you may not recognize it at first reading, but there is so much for us to learn from this week’s text. We are going to see how all Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for all of life and godliness. I can’t wait to see how the Lord uses this text to galvanize us for the mission of building these walls of faith to the glory of God.
Please take some time to read through Nehemiah Chapter 3 and consider any principles of partnership that rise out of it. Also, be sure to listen to the worship set as you prepare for worship this Sunday.
Love you, Church.
