Weeping for a Soul (Nehemiah 1:1-4, Proverbs 29:18)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, October 20, 2013
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Examine yourself. If you were the only representative for the church of a God, what would they see? Would they see in you a desire for Jesus Christ? We often lose touch living in our concert able lifestyles of those that are dying and of those that are in need. How many of us are truly concerned of those that are lost? Jesus didn't come to make your life easy, heal you or for your pleasure. Those that do not win souls to salvation is foolish. How did we as Christians get so comfortable that we no longer work in the field? We are more concerned about what hurts our feelings, selfish. If the motivation is not about the souls of the lost, then STOP IT. The purpose of the church is to show others salvation and to bring them into salvation. When was the last time that you wept, mourned and fasted for a soul? Does it bother you that you know people, loved ones that are doing to hell? Why wait for God to tell you to go? He has already told you to go with the Great Commission.

Nehemiah 1:1-4

1The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace, 2That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. 3And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. 4And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven, (KJV)
