Hard Pressed but Not Crushed, Part 1

References: Nehemiah 3

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 Enemy Within

If God has redeemed us from our sin and given us the Holy Spirit to strengthen us against sin, then why do we go on sinning? In his book, The Enemy Within, Kris Lundgaard addresses this plaguing question by drawing upon the writings of Puritan author John Owen.

The gold Lungaard mines from John Owen’s work gives us hope, renewed love for Christ, and an approach to holiness through faith in Him in spite of our sinful state.

By revisiting the profound writings of John Owen, Lungaard updates the exposition, outlines, arguments and illustrations to bring this rich understanding of the Bible to the contemporary world.
