“The Time Is Now” is a study of the book of Haggai and how God used the prophet to lead Israel to rebuild God's temple. This three-part series will encourage us to act on what God is calling us to do to rebuild what has been destroyed in our lives —our marriage, our finances, our relationships— the list goes on.
JULY 8 – “STOP TALKING AND START DOING”
For five decades, rebuilding God’s temple was all the people of Israel thought about. But when it got difficult, for 14 years they put the project on hold. Instead of working on God’s house, they actually started building their own houses, and they built very, very nice houses. They forgot about God’s house, so God raised up the prophet Haggai to call the people back to rebuild the temple for God. In this opening message we’ll talk about what it takes to stop talking and start rebuilding what’s damaged in our lives.
JULY 15 – “PUSHING THROUGH”
When we’re trying to rebuild or repair something in our lives, sometimes it can be discouraging. We want to give up because it is difficult, it takes so much time, or we don’t see any progress. In this message we will explore the reasons we give up and why we need to be strong and push through whatever it is that keeps us from rebuilding.
JULY 22 – “OBEY NO MATTER WHAT”
What do you do when you are trying to obey God and life is still not going very well? Is it really worth it to serve and obey God? This message will help us discover that God wants more than obedience – He wants our heart. And when our heart isn’t right with God, everything we do will be wrong.
