Nehemiah 11:1-12:26

My sermon notes for Wednesday night, Sept 28th.  Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon. They are provided as an outline each week for our Tabernacle Church family. The church provides a live stream of the service each Wednesday at 6:30 on Facebook. We also provide the services through YouTube. You can find Sermon Notes, Family Devotional Guides, Prayer List, and other resources at our Church Website.

Nehemiah 11:1-12:26


  • Populating the city with people
  • The importance of people and the difference they can make.
  • Walls, gates, and temple or up… now for the people.
  • Then and now… PEOPLE MATTER

It takes a variety of people

The church today is a body of gifted believers

  • 1 Corinthians 12:1-31
  • Ephesians 4:1-16

It takes a variety of people who understand their mission and purpose and are willing to act upon their convictions

  • What we do is for the Lord
  • Servant leaders
  • Willing to do
  • ALL IN mentality
  • Jerusalem being the City of God
  • The Church being the Church of God

1 Timothy 3:15 – if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth. (ESV)

  • Then… city in order. People and their calling
  • Now… church in order. People and their calling
