True Repentance (Nehemiah 9)

Nehemiah 9
Discussion Questions:
  • Read Nehemiah 9:1-3. It was stated in the sermon that the people went through rituals that reflected the status of their hearts.

  • What would it be like to go to church today and dress the condition of our hearts?
  • What would your outward appearance reveal about your inward condition?
  • The children of Israel responded to the completion of the wall with the reading of God’s Word and praise. How do you typically respond whenever God completes a season in your life?
  • How do we typically respond whenever we first encounter an obstacle? Do we respond the same way as we do whenever the wall is completed?
  • True repentance always brings about a change in our lives. Do you agree or disagree? What are some elements of Scripture that support your stance?
