The Right Now 2010 Conference. The Theme? Lead Beyond Our Walls. Wow! How appropriate is this for me, for men like me, for men like I use to be!?!? God is good! He's better than that. He's great!

This past Sunday, I attended church at my local church http://www.christianfellowship.com/ and heard a sermon on Christ's determination to build us up and His willingness to stay the course and not give up until our lives [our walls] are built as He would have them built. 

We've been going through the book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah is the story of how God lead one man into a course of action that would forever change the outlook of a nation and the courage of a generation of people called by God.

The passage used to get the point across?   
Now it came to pass when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies heard that I had built the wall and that there was no breach left therein, though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates, that Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, "Come, let us meet together in one of the villages in the plain of Ono." But they thought to do me mischief. And I sent messengers unto them, saying, "I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?" Yet they sent unto me four times after this sort; and I answered them after the same manner. ~ Nehemiah 6:1-4
Nehemiah represented something even bigger than that though. He foreshadowed the One to come, the One that has since come and will come again, the One that would not come down until the work was finished.

Nehemiah was determined to continue the work on the wall. Christ finished the work on the Cross. 
"It is finished" ~ Jesus, moments before He died on the Cross for our sins. St. John 19:30 
Centuries after Nehemiah, Jesus carried the Cross through the walls, bore it beyond the walls and, 3 days later, resurrected. 

Now what?
