Series:  Back to Worship

Topic:  Open the Eyes of My Heart

Text: Nehemiah 8:1-12

SCRIPTURE: Read these verses in a couple of different translations. 

Nehemiah did not read the Scriptures casually to the people. What was done to prepare for this time of worship?

When the passage was read and explained, the people wept. Why? And how did the leaders respond to their weeping? What instruction did they give?

ACCOUNTABILITY: While some of our worship takes place in solitude, this is a beautiful example of corporate worship. Are you allowing yourself multiple opportunities for worship? Talk with your group about how they worship by themselves and with others. What worship experience might you consider adding based on your conversation?

When you see others celebrating God in a way that is new or foreign to you, what goes on in your mind and heart?

TRANSFORMATION: We live in such a fast-paced society. Do we take the time to prepare for worship? How can we better prepare ourselves and our families?

“Worship happens whenever we intentionally cherish God and value Him above all else in life. Worship reveals what is important to us.”  Adele Ahlberg Calhoun

The Ten Commandments

Most people know about the Ten Commandments, even if they do not necessarily know what they are. Rather than viewing them as relics of another time, the Ten Commandments reflect how we can love God and love others. Our response to them matters because it shows whether or not we trust God and believe what He says is best for us. Join us as we explore how the Ten Commandments lead us to a better way of life.
