This is developed from a blog I originally posted several months ago but have edited to include additional Scripture, illustrations, charts, and a letter from Dr. Curtis Hutson.


When I was growing up in the 70s, the watchword among independent Baptists was separation. And with good reason. Many of my mentors were men who had come out of denominations that denied the inerrancy of Scripture, mi...

“The work of God requires stamina. Nehemiah sustained his stamina even through staggering difficulties. He persisted through both ridicule and discouragement, and he remained faithful when tempted to compromise. This tenacity is required of leaders who will make a difference. Will you crumble under the pressures, or will you face the trials with God’s strength? Many today question the possibility of revival. These naysayers see only the decaying moral condition of society and the disappointing lukewarm condition of churches. Revival, however, is not dependent on or the result of a flourishing spiritual condition. Some of the greatest revivals in Scripture came during the darkest times. Let us not look at the rubbish, but at Christ, the Rock, who can rebuild our country through revival. Let us be leaders God can use to bring revival. Nehemiah was not a man to sit idly by when there was tremendous need. Neither was he a man to attempt meeting such need in his own strength. God used Nehemiah to bring revival because Nehemiah began with supplication for God’s forgiveness and power. The task of rebuilding the walls could never have been completed by one man alone; it needed a leader who understood the power of synergy. Nehemiah’s willingness to be personally involved in the work, as well as his ability to convey the need to others, resulted in a task force that completed this enormous building project in a mere fifty-two days—to the glory of God. Like any godly leader, Nehemiah did not go unchallenged. Yet, he sustained his stamina in the face of every opposition. Nehemiah’s life proves that revival is possible, even when it appears the most unlikely. God sends revival through leaders willing to make a difference.”

“Christ offers a level of rest that no seminar, tranquilizer, counselor, or vacation can deliver. It is the deep soul rest of serving one Master and pulling with Him on the light end of an easy yoke.”
Paul Chappell, Stewarding Life: One Lifetime, Limited Resources, Eternal Priorities

“Are you facing a trial today? Perhaps fog is hiding the path of life from you and you don’t know which way to go. God gives you the answer for trials—stay close to Him. Allow Him to guide you through the stormy path, and trust His Word for comfort and guidance.”
