Whether you are a regular attendee, or this is your first time with us, we wanted to make sure you know how much we appreciate you joining for worship today here at Nevills Chapel!
If you are visiting with us for the first time, we would love for you to fill out a visitor’s card so we can have a record of your visit. If you have any questions concerning our church or any of our services, please feel free to ask one of our pastors or any of our greeters.
Today as we worship, I want to encourage you to think about the incredible majesty of God as the creator of everything. He is the giver of life and the reason we have breath in our lungs to live another day. We need to concentrate on Him and our service to Him. Will you join me today in worship to our Great and Mighty God?
I want us to meditate together on the following scripture from Psalm 100:4-5; “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and his court with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is Good and his love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.”
Priorities – we all have them, but are they in the right order? This morning we are going to look into the book of Haggai. Haggai is a prophet that comes to the people of Israel after they have returned to their homeland after 70 years of captivity. The message of the Lord that He sent through the prophet, Haggai, was for the people to get their priorities in order.
They were so focused on themselves and their desires, that they had forgotten all about God and the work they were supposed to be working on, rebuilding the temple. God sent a reminder to them, and I truly believe we need to be reminded of the very same thing. As we look around our society, people are busy. But they are busy chasing wants and dreams for themselves and most people have forgotten all about God. We need to get our priorities in order and put “First things First” to truly reap the benefits of this life. God told Israel then, and I believe He is telling us today that as long as we are self-focused, the blessings that He has for us will not come in the way He would have them come, but instead we will struggle for the dream but come short in the reality. So, let us all put first things first
