Haggai – Prophet of God

There is a great benefit to a congregation where many of the members are reading through the Bible on a regular basis. This past Sunday Abe did a lesson from the prophet of Gad named Haggai. A few of us happened to be reading through that book recently and all were impressed by some of the context of this prophet for God’s people both then and now.

Main message: It’s time to build!

Abe spent a good bit of time looking back to the historical picture of the time of Haggai, and who his contemporaries were. I won’t spoil it, but you’ll hear in the lessons below about the time of Haggai’s writings.

He certainly had important things to share and we often overlook these “minor” prophets. This is something we ought not do, as “minor” only refers to the length of the books, not the status or relevance of these men.

Answering Wisely

We all face challenges at work, at home, and with family where we are faced with conversations or situations that we feel are not giving God credit for something, or are morally sound. We see this more and more in life. The more sinful people are, the more they promote the very thing they do or expect. So we need to know how far to bend when we try to stay out of things, and when to stand up and make known your stance on what is “right” and what is “wrong”.

Roger had asked Abe about this subject while at lunch recently. Abe was kind enough to do 2 lessons on it, but on a day that Roger was sick and did not make it to hear the lessons.

We all face challenges in our Christian lives. Are you ready to give a defense for our trust in Christ? Or are you just ready to run away? When is a good time to have a conversation on spiritual things, or are there times when we need to lead off to a time when we can talk?

Roger feels the weight of this topic, and I am sure others do too.

Spiritual Goals

Cody had both lessons for this past Sunday, and reminded us of the importance of Spiritual Goals in our lives as Christians. This is an important subject as many of us work hard to plan for the weekend, for vacation, for a new car or new house, but often fail in addressing our plans as the followers of Christ. How can we read the Bible more? How can we teach more of those around us? How can we be leaders in the church, teachers, elders, ministers? How can we just be stronger people or have more faith? Without planning it is not possible. What about the church? Without plans the church that is made up of members and congregations will shrink making less and less of an impact.

So what do we do? Cody focuses on a number of passages that remind us how to plan for our soul’s well-being and for that of those around us.
