Building God's Kingdom With My Best Treasures - Part 1

TEXT: Haggai 1:2-14, Ezra 3:6-10

Memory Verse: Haggai 1:9 “ Ye looked for much, and lo, it came to little, and when you brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and te run every man unto his own house.”

AIM

To understand that God is not a beggar; neither a dog nor like our maid or servant. To know that all our treasures in this life including our family's belongs to God. To put to heart that whatever we cannot give to God will one day be wasted. To also know that we cannot give enough for the kingdom of God.

INTRODUCTION

Nothing makes God happy like when his children take a step of faith to begin projects that glorify his name. Luke 7:2-5. A military officer in the bible days built a synagogue for God and in the day of his trouble, there was a quick intervention on his behalf by the elders of Israel. We must be a part of building the house of GOD WHEN THE NEED ARISES LIKE OUR ONGOING CATHEDRAL. Presently, there is a call from above to build God a house; will you close your ears to the call. Ornan told David that he was ready to give him a land and the things required to build an altar for the Lord. Can you learn from them today? 1 Chro. 21:22-23
