Grace Greater Than Sin (3 of 4)
Series: A Call to Action - Haggai
Tonight, we examine the third sermon of the prophet Haggai, found in the OT book named after him, chapter 2 and verses 10-19. We continue our series, A Call To Action. Through the prophet, Haggai, God is calling His people out of complacency and apathy and commanding their obedience.
And what we notice in this passage is that the people have come to another bump in the road. In fact, throughout the Bible you will notice that the record of God's people is consistently tarnished with inconsistency, but the record of God is consistently faithful. Our lives reveal our unfaithfulness, but God's activity reveals His faithfulness.
*Do you ever wish you could just start over? Staples has made a fortune with their easy button commercials. It would be nice if there was such a thing as an easy button. There's a mound of paperwork at the office, easy button. There's a pile of dishes in the sink, easy button. There's an algebra test in front of you, easy button! Now that would be nice, right? But you know what I'd rather have? I think I'd rather have an undo button. Can you imagine having a button that allowed you to undo anything that you've messed up? Messed up that project, undo. Messed up that relationship, undo. Messed up that good intention, undo. Spoke to soon, undo. Unfortunately, we all know there's no such thing as an undo button in life. Once we do something, it's done. No matter how bad we'd like to, we can't undo the past. God could if He wanted to, but that's something He won't do. He will not change the past. But even though the Lord won't change the past, He'll do something even better. He will give you a fresh start for the future.*
This is God's faithful record received through the testimony of Scripture and revealed throughout history. In spite of the mountain of sin we amass and accumulate, He always has Grace Greater Than Sin.
