Inspiration for Today's Church from the Desk of Tim Barker
The Vision of Nehemiah
God’s Plan for Righteous Living
Nehemiah gives us God’s plan for righteous living.
The catch is not just knowing God’s plan but actually doing the will of the Father.
The Book of Nehemiah reveals a vital truth that our instant society often overlooks. Determination can take us only so far in achieving the goals God has for today’s Church.
Winning the lost for Christ takes preparation in both our time and our finances. We become the “right stuff” for achieving God’s plan when we are willing to risk everything for Him.
In this book, you will read of the inside enemy, the pitfalls of detours, and of creating order in God’s house to complete His will.
A healthy lifestyle for Jesus involves humility and faithfulness. The choice is up to you.
Nehemiah shows you how.
A Message from the Desk of Tim Barker:
As the District Superintendent for the South Texas District of the Assemblies of God, my ministry to win souls for Jesus begins here.
This is only my starting place, though. Nehemiah traveled a great distance to establish his ministry to God through the praise and worship of the people.
I wish to emulate Nehemiah’s example. My goal is to prepare in faithfulness and thankfulness to let my life spread the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world and lead the lost to Him.
