Haggai 1

Most of us are well aware that Jesus gave his followers a job to do. We call it the Great Commission. It’s “great” because of who it comes from and what it involves. God wants to save people and He chooses to use us to bring them the message of salvation. Why, then, do many of us find it so hard to obey the Great Commission? The people of Israel faced a similar challenge many years ago. They had to overcome a series of obstacles to fulfill God’s commission for them, and we can learn important lessons from their experience that will help us fulfill the work that God has given us to do today
