Jeff Clark - Building from the Rubble - Nehemiah 1:1-4, 2:1-18; 2 Corinthians 10:3-18. Paul says, “it is not the one who commends himself who is approved but the one who is commended by the Lord.” But many of us find our ordinary lives messy from forces that are beyond our control. What new potential might emerge if we humbly lived fully surrendered to Christ in the sphere of service God assigned us? We might find a Spirit-empowered believer has an advantage in building something beautiful from the mess.
