About this Series
As we read the bible God challenges us to align the ‘little’ story of our lives in Melbourne’s East with his ‘big’ story which spreads out from before the foundation of the world until the Lord’s return and then on into eternity. What is God doing? How are we called to be a part of it? But we are not the first to face this challenge. After God’s people came back from exile they neglected the work of rebuilding God’s house, the temple, and simply got on with their own private lives. In 520 BC God sent the prophet Haggai to challenge their priorities and rouse them back into action. God’s mission in the world was not yet completed. The temple of his dwelling was still central to his plan for his glory. Haggai called God’s people to prioritise God’s plan ahead of their own plans. His call goes out to us as well.
