Planting the Vision

References: Nehemiah 2

Every growing church faces the need for reorganization. There is probably no Old Testament book better suited as a manual for such change than Nehemiah. What was needed at this point in the history of God's people was someone who could cope in the middle of ruin and discouragement, one who could keep forging ahead despite the threat of constant turmoil. God had been preparing Nehemiah for this task — an ordinary man with extraordinary ability for an out of the ordinary challenge. In these studies we discover:
1. The kind of people God uses when he does His work.
2. The principles necessary for any lasting accomplishment.
3. The persistence and stickability involved.
4. What it means to do God's work in God's way.

The Hole in Our Holiness

The Hole in our Holiness is that we don't seem to care much about holiness. Or, at the very least, we don't understand it. And we all have our reasons too: Maybe the pursuit of holiness seems legalistic. Maybe it feels like one more thing to worry about in your already overwhelming life. Maybe the emphasis on effort in the Christian life appears unspiritual. Or maybe you've been trying really hard to be holy and it's just not working! Whatever the case, the problem is clear: too few Christians look like Christ and too many don't seem all that concerned about it. This is a book for those of us who are ready to take holiness seriously, ready to be more like Jesus, ready to live in light of the grace that produces godliness. This is a book about God's power to help us grow in personal holiness and to enjoy the process of 
transformation.
