This message was given by Pastor Jonathan Stobbs as he continued his morning ministry in the book of Nehemiah. Very often we can hear a good sermon, or read a good book, or even be lifted in corporate worship, but what follows? We can say Amen to lots of things, but do we really implement them into the way that we live. The people in the time of Nehemiah had experienced a revival and a great outpuring of grace, yet it had an impact on them to the extent that they covenanted together to live in a manner pleasing to the Lord. In this message, Pastor Stobbs considers what the people emphasised after they had been under conviction. He looks at the third principle of renewing support for the house of God. Pastor Stobbs looks at the implications of this principle and how it can be practically applied in the life of the believer regarding giving. He looks at whether believers should tithe amongst other things. There is a call for a return to wise stewardship under the hand of the Lord. However, all that we can give pales into insignificance when, as Pastor Stobbs rightly reminds us, we think of what a gracious heavenly Father has given for us!
