Leadership By Example

Nehemiah 5:14-19

I.     His Sacrifice (vv. 14, 17, 18).

A.    The Food Allowance.

II.    His Sensitivity (vv. 15, 18).

A.    To their oppression.

1 Peter 5:2-3 (NASB-U), “Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; [3] nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock.”

B.    To their servitude.

III.   His Strain (vs. 16).

IV.   His Stimulus (vv. 15, 19).

A.    His reverence for the Lord (vs. 15).

Unger says, “The fear of God is of several kinds:

1.     Superstitious, which is the fruit of ignorance;

2.     Servile, which leads to abstinence from many sins through apprehension of punishment; and

3.     Filial (denoting the relationship of child to parent).

B.    His reward from the Lord (vs. 19).

1 Corinthians 15:58 (NASB-U), “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.”

Hebrews 6:10 (NASB-U), “For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints.”
