The Book of Nehemiah – May 14, 2023

Nehemiah 8:8-17

Pastor Tim Nguyen

Some people read the Bible and they become these really gross monsters that just judge and shame other people. Or some people even use the bible to justify doing whatever they want because Jesus loves them and will forgive them. Why is that? Aren’t we supposed to come out better after experiencing God’s words?

I think the problem is, it’s easy to misunderstand what God has said in the Bible. It’s an ancient book, from a different time and culture, with a complicated story, and unusual language. But I’ve seen that when people really take the time to understand what God is saying, there’s power in his words. Power that leads to transformed lives, and God helps us to do things that we would never be able to do on our own – if we go through the trouble to understand what he’s saying.

That leads me to our main question today; How do we know we have understood God’s words?
