This is the final message by Pastor Stobbs in his morning series based upon the book of Nehemiah. Why should we remember Nehemiah? In this sermon, 10 core principles are set out that identify the major motivation in Nehemiah's life. As leaders, believers, we should seek to emulate them in our own lives as we seek to walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord. So it is in this final look at Nehemiah that Pastor Stobbs calls you to remember, to remember his example, but more importantly to remember the principles Nehemiah laboured by, and his purpose, that being, the glory of God and the exaltation of His redeeming work. The truth is the godly leadership is based on principles alien to this world, and its worldly wisdom of what leadership is. As Christ reveals in His words (Matthew 20:25-28), the truest kind of leadership is one that demands service, sacrifice, and selflessness. So I want to bring to you a number of elements in this man's life that set him apart. Now as a whole they are the characteristics that godly leaders should possess, yet, all of us can learn and heed some of the individual lesson that are found here. An important message that challenges and stirs.
