What are you passionate about? What would the people who know you best say that you are passionate about? What would they say makes you really happy? What would they say makes you really sad? In Nehemiah 1:4-11, we see a man who was passionate. He really cared. What did he care so much about? About the plan and people of God. How did Nehemiah get that way? How did he develop such a passion for the plan and people of God? It’s so easy to slide into a lifestyle of focusing on our own pain, pleasure, and pursuits. How might our hearts be lifted higher? How might we develop a passion for God’s plan and people? Let’s explore those questions this Sunday as we study Nehemiah 1 together.
