"A MIND TO WORK"
by Pastor Tony Sutton

THE UNITY

Neh 4:6 So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.
  • A) WHEN WE COME ONE MIND AND ONE ACCORD, WE WILL FIND THAT THINGS COME TOGETHER MUCH BETTER.

THE ADVERSARY

Neh 4:8 And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.
  • A) ANYTIME WE PRESS AHEAD, FOR GOD, THE ADVERSARY WILL WAGE A WAR AGAINST US. HE WILL SET A PLAN OF ATTACK, AND MOVE IN FOR THE KILL.

THE WATCHMAN

Neh 4:13 Therefore set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows.
  • A) A WATCHMAN, SHEPARD, DEACON, S.S. TEACHER, ELDER, AND PASTOR, WILL STAY KEEN AND AWARE OF HIS SURROUNDINGS AND WILL ALERT THE FLOCK OF ANY DANGERS. HE WILL EQUIP THOSE HE WATCHES OVER WITH THE WORD THAT WILL PROTECT, AND PREPARE THEM. YOU KNOW "FEED MY SHEEP". HE WILL KEEP THEM APPRISED TO THE SITUATION. HE WILL DO HIS BEST TO PROTECT THEM, HOWEVER HE KNOWS THAT IF THE FLOCK IS PREPARED THEY TOO CAN FIGHT, MAKING THE BATTLE MORE MANAGEABLE, AND RECRUITING NEW SOLDIERS AS WE GO.

THE ENCOURAGER

     Neh 4:14 And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the LORD, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.
  • A) THESE LEADERS WILL ENCOURAGE, LIFT UP, AND ESTEEM THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST. REASSURING THEM THAT THEY ARE FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT! THEY WILL ASSURE THEM THAT IT IS WELL WORTH THEIR EFFORT!

A MIND TO WORK.

     DO YOU HAVE A MIND TO WORK? MANY HAVE A MIND TO WORK, UNFORTUNATELY THE MIND TO WORK THAT MANY POSSESS, IS GEARED MORE TOWARD WORLDLY THINGS THAN GODLY THINGS. WE NEED "A MIND TO WORK" FOR GOD!!! WHEN WE COME IN UNITY WITH "A MIND TO WORK" WE WILL SEE THE GREAT THINGS THAT GOD CAN DO, HAPPEN IN OUR LIVES, HIS HAND PERFORM BEFORE US, TO BLESS OUR EFFORTS.
