Rededication Service

A Rededication of Mt. Zion Church!

Nehemiah 12:27 (NKJV)
Nehemiah Dedicates the Wall
27 Now at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought out the Levites in all their places, to bring them to Jerusalem to celebrate the dedication with gladness, both with thanksgivings and singing, with cymbals and stringed instruments and harps.

The purpose of this grand occasion is to celebrate the dedication — the dedication of the walls, that is! This Sunday, we RE-DEDICATE Mt. Zion Church To the service of the Lord!

In our rededication ceremony, four things will emerge here that I want us to see.

I. CONSECRATION OF THE BUILDING
II. CONSECRATION OF THE PULPIT
III. CONSECRATION OF THE BAPTISMAL
IV. CONSECRATION OF THE LORD’S TABLE

God has come down in blessing…the Holy Spirit has descended upon His people so that their hearts and their souls are entirely for one thing: to serve the Lord. “This one thing I do.” Maybe that’s what the book of Nehemiah is saying to us, that too often our lives are halting between two opinions. Too often our affections are too divided. And, oh! For the work of God’s Spirit to come down and take hold of us, so that we might be out and out for God. May God so grant it!

Joshua – A New Beginning – Part 8

“How Big Is Your God?”

Joshua 10:1-14

How big is the God you serve? The question really is, how big is your concept of God? Is the God you serve big enough to perform miracles in your behalf. Or does your faith limit what God is able to do for you? Today’s message from the life of Israel gives us some important principles to remember.

This week, we see that the Lord is doing the fighting. We are told the Lord routed them (v10), the Lord chased them, and the Lord struck them down. Think of the excitement of realizing that God is fighting for you. We have all been decimated by the enemy, beat up by circumstances and wearied with our obligations. How wonderful it would be if God came to our rescue, took up our cause and defeated our enemies.

God fights for us too. If He were not constantly taking our side in the conflicts of life, we would have been overwhelmed long ago. Sin would have already defeated us and destroyed the last vestige of character. God still fights for His people and part of the wonder of Heaven will be to learn just how much God has protected us fought for us.
