The Church of Scotteriology: A Sermon on Nehemiah

August 17, 2011

Recently on his Facebook page Jim West made a comment about the positive reception of a recent short sermon he preached, to which Robert J. Wilson replied, “I got 55 minutes out of Nehemiah… Let me know if you want sermon pointers. LOL.”

I figured I might as well share a sermon on Nehemiah with Jim, Robert, and the many congregants of the Church of Scotteriology. Feel free to use any part of the sermon in your own preaching as well.

Here’s my sermon on Nehemiah:

“Nehemiah was first and foremost a Persian governor who tried to dress up his social control in the form of local religion. He was about as much fun as a heart attack. Don’t be like Nehemiah. Let’s pray.”

Short, sweet, to the point, and with a good life lesson at the end. I’m practically the next big thing in evangelical preaching!

    I’ve always thought his social control freakery was typical of a short man (think Napoleon and Hitler!) And let’s face it, poor Miah was shorter than both of them: he was only Knee High.
