Episode Notes

“Bring Out the Book”: When God Revives His People (Nehemiah 8)
Dr. Bill Cook

1. When God Revives His People, They Hunger for the Word and Worship (8:1-8)
--"God must speak to us before we have any liberty to speak to him. He must disclose to us who he is before we can offer him what we are in acceptable worship. The worship of God is always a response to the Word of God. Scripture wonderfully directs and enriches our worship." (John Stott)
2. When God Revives His People They Experience Genuine Joy (8:9-12)
3. When God Revives His People There is A Renewed Passion for Holy Obedience (8:13-18)

Final thoughts on Worship, the Word, and Joyful Obedience . . .
--Renewal begins with abiding in God’s Word and responding in heartfelt worship and holy living.
--Renewal results, not in an easy life, but genuine joy.
--If you find your heart cold and indifferent to God remember back to the plan of God carried out on a hill called Calvary.
