THE TIME IS NOW

WEEK #2: OBEDIENCE

Jeremy brown : LEAD PASTOR

One of our biggest problems: Conditional Obedience

God isn’t after your EFFORT, He’s after your HEART

‭‭Haggai‬ ‭2:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

If someone carries consecrated meat in the fold of their garment, and that fold touches some bread or stew, some wine, olive oil or other food, does it become consecrated?’ ” The priests answered, “No.”


‭‭Haggai‬ ‭2:13‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Then Haggai said, “If a person defiled by contact with a dead body touches one of these things, does it become defiled?” “Yes,” the priests replied, “it becomes defiled.”


Sin is like spaghetti sauce, it stains what it touches

‭‭Haggai‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Then Haggai said, “ ‘So it is with this people and this nation in my sight,’ declares the Lord. ‘Whatever they do and whatever they offer there is defiled.”


Right thing + Wrong Heart = Wrong Thing

Your ATTITUDE in obedience matters as much as your obedience

‭‭Haggai‬ ‭2:15-16‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Now give careful thought to this from this day on —consider how things were before one stone was laid on another in the Lord’s temple. When anyone came to a heap of twenty measures, there were only ten. When anyone went to a wine vat to draw fifty measures, there were only twenty.


‭‭Haggai‬ ‭2:17‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“I struck all the work of your hands with blight, mildew and hail, yet you did not return to me,’ declares the Lord.”


God isn’t after your EFFORT, He’s after your HEART

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”


‭‭Haggai‬ ‭2:18-19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought to the day when the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid. Give careful thought: Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit. “ ‘From this day on I will bless you.


We don’t obey God because we want His blessing, we obey God because He is the blessing
