    We consider this passage in light of the labor that
    we perform today for the establishment and prosperity
    of the kingdom of Christ.
    Laboring in the Ruins involves
    1. Bearing burdens for Christ
    4:17 - "and they that bare burdens..."
    Matthew 11:28-30 - take my yoke
    Galatians 6:1-2 - bare the burdens of God's people
    2. Building up the brethren
    4:17 - "They which builded on the wall..."
    Some builders today build wrong
    1 Peter 2:7 - the stone which the builders
    1 Cor 3:12 - build with wood, hay and stubble
    Ancient ruins guided Nehemiah in building the walls
    We likewise have an ancient book in Holy Writ to
    guide us
    Prayer is key to building up ourselves and others.
    There are some things that only can be accomplished
    by prayer.
    We build up God's people by applying the gospel to
    every part of the heart of God's people
    3. Battling the belligerent
    4:17 - "...and with the other hand held a weapon"
    Sanballat and Tobiah were continually hostile to the
    If you want to see God's kingdom built, you can
    expected to be threatened and mocked.
    1 Peter 5:8-9 - Ultimately we battle Satan
    We will know the hot breath and the roar of the evil
    one against us
    Yet we will ultimately know the victory of Christ
    because the greater Bearer of Burdens will hold us up
    and afterward receive us into glory.
    Are you active in bearing burdens, active in
    building up the brethren, and active in battling the
    opposition to the gospel? To choose wrongly is to
    perish. Choose wisely. Choose Christ.
