Do Something Great

“Desire that your life count for something great! Long for your life to have eternal significance. Want this! Don’t coast through life without a passion.” ― John Piper, Don't Waste Your Life

The story begins as Nehemiah, the prophet, receives news about the tragic state of his city Jerusalem. Most notably the city walls are in ruins. The heart of Nehemiah is instantly broken for the people of his city. After a time of weeping and fasting for God to move, Nehemiah is given a great burden to rise up and do something about it. Sometimes that's exactly how God moves. We pray for God to do something about the brokenness we see around us, and God answers that prayer by calling us to stand up and do something great.
