Remembering for Good: A Study of Nehemiah. 

Never forget. 

In the aftermath of wars, national tragedies, or the loss of a loved one, these familiar words call us to remembrance. They are words we need, because as soon as the intensity of the pain subsides, as soon as the wound begins to heal, as soon as we embrace a “new normal,” we quickly forget. 

Likewise, the people of God are a remembering people. Called to Remember God’s name and words. Called to remember His mighty works, wonders, benefits, promises, and marvelous deeds.

But we are fickle and forgetful. Prone to forget. To move on. 

One of the most vivid examples of this played out in the Ancient Near East in the mid 400s B.C.. The people of God are in exile. Jerusalem’s walls have been broken down and it’s gates destroyed with fire. 

But these are not events of the recent past. Nearly 150 years have past. Most have forgotten, or simply accepted this as the new normal.

Not Nehemiah. Receiving a report from Jerusalem, Nehemiah remembers what few have: that God not only promised to send His unfaithful people into exile…He promised to bring them back. 

Nehemiah’s remembrance moves him to bold prayer and action. He cries out for God to remember His covenant. For God to remember Nehemiah and his efforts in the face of immense opposition. He calls his fellow Jews to remember and renew their covenant with God. 

God remembers. We remember. And all of this for good: so that God’s people and world would experience the genuine good of God’s promises and power. 

Join us this fall at Liberti Church as we study the book of Nehemiah. Through his example and experiences, we’ll be called to our own remembrance of God’s name, God’s words, and God’s promises, in order that we too might pursue His genuine good in our time and place.
