The State of the Church – Vernon Forest Baptist Church

As we look upon the year 2017 we cherish the memories and look forward to the exciting things the Lord has planned for us in 2018. Our text from Nehemiah Chapter 1 teaches us the following points.

Three approaches to serving God and fulfilling God’s plan:

  1. Cosmetic Approach
  2. New Approach
  3. God’s Approach

Nehemiah gave us an example of God’s Approach:

  1. He Inquired………………………….vs. 2
  2. He Interceded………………………vs. 4
  3. He Identified………………………..vs. 5-11
  4. He Involved himself……………..Ch. 2 vs. 5
