We studied Nehemiah a couple weeks ago in our young adult Sunday School class and one of the things we observed is that when Nehemiah took hold of the vision that God had for him to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, that was precisely when the opposition started from area leaders like Sanballat.
Its pretty much a guarantee that the closer you get to obedience, the harder the road is and the more doubters, skeptics and accusers you will encounter. That is definitely what I am finding with Church ReVerb. I find myself on the brink of either pushing through to obedience or giving up and throwing in the towel.
What do you do when the road to obedience is hard and costly? Do you go big or go home?
