Rebuilding the Walls of the Human Soul-  Part 10

“My Responsibility to Your Spiritual Growth”

As we continue our study of the book of Nehemiah, I have to admit I have been surprised how every week we find such nuggets of truth that apply to our world right here and now.

If you will, look at your life like the walls of a city; things have happened to you and I, we have been betrayed, we have been rejected, gone through divorces, abused, let down, and lots of other things that are too painful to think about or mention, and all of those events have left a mark, like the destroying if you will of the walls that were intended to protect and defend our personalities.

Because of that we walk around wounded and operating on bad information broken personalities wondering why our lives are in such a sad state of affairs hoping against hope that we can be fixed.

In the book of Nehemiah we see a picture of the Holy Spirit coming to completely restore and rebuild our personalities so that we can function in the way we all hoped we could. A picture of God sending someone who could help us to get our lives back in order.

One of the tools that He uses is the church; the crazy, healthy, sometimes frustrating and goofy collection of people known as the church.

Here is the question few of us ever ask: how am I responsible for your spiritual growth and how are you responsible for mine?
