Sacrifice – “Work, give, save, live.”
Scripture: Nehemiah 5:14-15
(Please note: If you are viewing video on a Mobile Device you must scroll to bottom and enable “DESKTOP MODE”)
Nehemiah models for us what it means to be all in to the vision, financially. This makes me ask the question where am I at in my giving and sacrifice? We are all at one of five places: not a giver, occasional giver, percentage giver, tither, or extravagant giver. God wants us to take the next step in our giving in order that we will not be dependent on our things but prove our dependence on God. He is the one who gave it all at the cross. Leaders model giving, period. Lord, in all things give our church family obedience equal to our level of knowledge about the scripture.

Watch Week 4 of Relaunch: “Striving For Unity” Here:
The more you love others, the more you leave your pride. There is no place for pride when working on a high performance team. The people are pulling together to rebuild the wall amidst the opposition, and they are learning how to be absolutely unified. In order to strive for unity we must rely on the power of God, remain alert, and rally to the needs of others.
