Pastor Wrinkles: Little Heroes, Big World

100_1447

I recently had the privilege of preaching the Independence Day Message at Cornerstone Church in Winchendon. The message I preached was entitled, “Little Heroes, Big World”.

Over the next several days I will excerpt the sermon for us here so that we can have discussions on what we see in the Scripture.

Our opening Text is from the Book of Haggai chapter 2 verses 2-9

Speak to Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, to Joshua son of Jozadak,[a] the high priest, and to the remnant of the people. Ask them, ‘Who of you is left who saw this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing? But now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ declares the Lord. ‘Be strong, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt. And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’

“This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”  Haggai 2: 2-9

I, of course, have my ideas but I would love to hear from you what stood out to you in this passage.

  1. What jumps out at me is–Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the Lord Almighty.. . And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’…‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” God gives a directive, be strong and work. He doesn’t leave them to work alone, He and His Spirit is with them so there is no need to fear. And He gives the promise that there will be peace. I need this reminder! God always does His part and He asks—expects—me to do mine, but not without His help. Amazing isn’t it?
