Sermon Highlights, July 15, 2018

We think we can live life all by ourselves.  God allows us to.  But life is sooooo much better with Him!

God and I = WE!  Together!

God has already created every provision for life that is needed. God says you can’t mess up what I want to do in your life.  You can delay it, hinder it, but my word will come to pass.

Haggai 1:13  …… I am with you says the Lord!

Haggai asks the people – Why are you living in luxurious homes while my house is in ruins.  Our body is the temple of the Lord and spiritually it lays in ruins while we run around doing many other things.

Would I treat my body the way I do if I honored my body as belonging to God?  How much energy do I put into my spiritual body?

1 Peter 2 Get rid of all evil behavior.  Be done with deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech.  Desire, crave, pure spiritual milk,….. now that you have tasted the Lord’s kindness.

Every day the choice is given, will you agree with God or resist Him?

God wants us to:

  • Acknowledge Him as our source for all of life
  • Pay attention to our physical body – give it to God completely.
  • Pay attention to our spiritual bodies as well

Right now we need rain.  The grass is starting to turn brown.  Rain will brighten it up again.  Our spiritual bodies need the washing of the word of God, His good news, time spent in His presence.

Haggai 1:5-15   You are busy, but produce little.  You eat but not satisfied.  Thirsty but it’s not quenched.  Wear clothes but still cold.  Make money, but it seems to disappear.  You are busy building your own life, but it seems empty.  The people repented and the LORD said – I am with you!

Today, recognize your need for the Lord, set aside some time to spend with Him.  Acknowledge His presence in your life and allow Him to bring satisfaction, no more thirst, but, contentment, enough provisions for the day and peace.
