In 586 BC, the mighty King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar, flexed his muscle over Jerusalem and the people of God. The city walls were torn down, homes destroyed, its inhabitants exiled to Babylon, and Jerusalem’s temple, above all, was flattened. Years later, God’s people were allowed to return to rebuild their holy city and it’s temple. But not much time passed before they became self-obsessed, focusing on their own lives and their own affairs, virtually ignoring the Lord. The prophet Haggai was sent to wake up God’s people from their spiritual slumber, encourage them to rebuild the temple, and to repent of their sin. Join us in this series as as we hear the ancient words of God through Haggai, encouraging us to keep God’s priorities our priorities, to repent of our sin, and to always serve him with all of our hearts.
