There are times in the life of a Christian that old sins come back to tempt. At such times we can either drift from God and ‘dabble’ in those old sins, in our old life and ways, or we can remember and determine that our lives are now given to honor and glorify God and His purposes and thus continue growing in sanctification and in bringing honor to the One who saved us.
In this sermon by Pastor Tim Bresnahan, we are brought into a time where honoring God and his purposes were forgotten of by the people and the effort necessary by Nehemiah to not only see a drifting people return to God, but the lessons we can learn and apply in our own lives to battle the real temptation of ‘drift’ from God.
