Our Invitation to God (1 of 2)
Series: Our Invitation to God
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
Now with our Bibles opened to the first chapter of the book of Nehemiah .. I want to speak to you about Our Invitation to God. Now we know about God’s invitation to us.
God has a standing invitation to strugglers. Matthew 11.28, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Revelation 19.9, “Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”

We need to invite God to do the amazing, the miraculous, those things only He can do among us and within us.

While the walls around the city of Jerusalem lay in ruin, Nehemiah invited the God of the Bible to do the miraculous, to do the amazing: to restore what lay in ruin! And we’re going to find that God did exactly that and even allowed His people to be a part of it.
Across this campus today are lives laying in ruin, marriages laying in ruin ...
