Under Pressure 5: The Pressure of the World

Under Pressure 5: The Pressure of the World

Nehemiah 8:1-12

In this sermon, we explore how Nehemiah and the Jews in Jerusalem and Palestine prepared to live for God as a part of the Persian Empire. How were they going to stand against the pressure to worship Persian gods, talk like Persians, live like Persians, believe as Persians and the like? How were they going to remain faithful in a world pressuring them to live and believe differently?
