History is often remembered for single events…Gutenburg’s press, the Reformation, the American Revolution. And we often have these turning points in our own lives…high school graduation, marriage, a new job. But you and I have another turning point that is no less important. It is a turning point that happens almost every single day, “Will I be obedient to the Lord?”
That is the same question the remnant of Israel had to answer. For 16 years they had refused to say yes to the Lord, until the prophet Haggai came along. Haggai recorded his 4 messages to the Jewish people over 500 years before the birth of Christ. Yet, this Old Testament book is still relevant today because it deals with the same turning points as we do today. Issues like spiritual apathy, excuses, obedience, consequences. The people of Haggai’s time listened and began a shift in their own spiritual lives. They returned to a devotion toward God. Are you dealing with some of the same apathetic attitude about God? Are you struggling with your relationship with Jesus Christ?
