The Most Dangerous Kind of Opposition

October 29, 2017 Speaker: Kevin Deyette Series: Nehemiah

Passage: Nehemiah 5:1–19

Title: The Most Dangerous Kind of Opposition
Text: Nehemiah 5

- The gospel calls Christians to build unity through generosity
- The problem: Christians exploiting fellow Christians
    - The heart of the problem: Greed and lust for the comforts of this world

Two Types of Anger:
1. Anger from our flesh
2. Righteous anger- reflecting the character of God

Considerations When Confronted:
1. How does your action reflect your fear (or lack thereof) of God?
2. How does your action affect the reputation of God?
    - You may be the most practical picture of Jesus others will see.

- Repentance includes stopping AND restoring / reconciling what you've done wrong as much as you can.
