The Magnum Opus of Nehemiah
Magnum opus is a Latin phrase meaning “great work.” Typically it refers to the supreme accomplishment of a man’s life.  It’s Michelangelo’s David.  It’s da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.  It’s Bach’s Mass in B Minor. And we applaud the great works of great men. We recognize their genius. But can an ordinary person have his own magnum opus?  The answer from the Old Testament book of Nehemiah seems to be a resounding “Yes!” Nehemiah was not a genius, as far as we can tell.  He couldn’t write like Dickens or speak like Churchill.  But Nehemiah recognized a great need, he sensed his life’s calling, and with God’s help he inspired a group of men to accomplish perhaps the greatest feat of engineering in human history.  So what about you?  When you look back on your life, what will you find?   Will there be a great defining moment?  Will there be even one crowning achievement?  It’s never too late to find your magnum opus.  Shakespeare wrote Hamlet, Nehemiah built his wall, and God has a masterpiece for you to complete as well.  So join us Sundays at 10 AM this summer for our brand new series of messages entitled The Magnum Opus of Nehemiah, and let’s discover your life’s great work!
