Text: Haggai 2:1-9
Have you ever experienced a change in your life that you weren't prepared for? Most people have, and when that change comes it can be hard to put God's will first instead of our own. That was what the Israelites struggled with as they attempted to rebuild Jerusalem in the book of Haggai. Pastor John Welborn, former pastor of Crosslink and now lead pastor at Salem Church, NYC, unpacks how the Israelites 'me first' mentality affected their faith and trust in the Lord. We are called to examine ourselves so that in our own lives we resist the temptation to put our will before God's will as we encounter change.
