1. I didn't preach Sunday morning. Tim Yarbrough from the Arkansas Baptist News did. He did well. I don't have his outline.
2. I did preach Sunday night. I also taught a discipleship session beforehand. I recorded both, but I just don't like the quality of presentation. Way too much rambling from me on both, likely related to my mind not being fully on-task. Ann was on her way home, flying from Florida to Texas to Arkansas.
Therefore, I take my punt for the year and I'm not posting either video or audio from that night. Here's the outline:
Sept 14 PM Haggai
Haggai 2:4, 9: The Spirit is here, and the glory is the Lord's--
Haggai 2:21–23 (NASB95)
21 “Speak to Zerubbabel governor of Judah, saying, ‘I am going to shake the heavens and the earth.
22 ‘I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations; and I will overthrow the chariots and their riders, and the horses and their riders will go down, everyone by the sword of another.’
23 ‘On that day,’ declares the Lord of hosts, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you,’ ” declares the Lord of hosts.
1. Commitment to obedience
2. Do not disdain what blessings God brings
3. Recognize that what we get here will, and should be, less than when it is obviously the work of our Great God
