Using the Book of Nehemiah, popular author and pastor Jacob Armstrong explores the physical and spiritual renovation experienced by the nation of Judah. Nehemiah knew that his plan for renovating the wall and gates of Jerusalem would be hard work. But equally hard would be the spiritual renovation of the Jewish people as they returned to their homeland.
Thankfully, spiritual renovation is not a do-it-yourself project. We need God's great power working through us to renovate our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Chapters include:Never Too Late for a Renovation It Starts with Tears What to Know Before You Build When Others Don’t Like Your Plans Inviting Others to Come Home The Big Reveal

We know that God disciplines all His children, but how do we recognize His discipline? And why are some people more severely chastised than others?
Dr. Lutzer points out three kinds of discipline. Educative discipline is given to strengthen us. Preventative discipline is brought into our lives to keep us from sin. And retributive discipline occurs when we are directly chastened for specific sins.
In this eBooklet, Dr. Lutzer treats the subject of God's discipline from a thorough study of Scripture and applies biblical principles to real-life experience.
