Right Now - The Blessings of Obedience

Scripture(s)

Haggai 2:10-23

 Reflection Questions

1.   Read Haggai 2:10-23. What are your thoughts on these verses after hearing Pastor Lonnie or Pastor Jesse’s sermon? Although the concepts are related to ancient practices somewhat foreign to us today, what truths can we still take away from these verses?\

2.   With obedience comes eventual blessing. It may not be the way we currently understand blessing, but obedience to God does give us blessings in our lives. How do you understand the idea of obedience in relation to your faith?
3.   Why has the word obedience become such a negative word (and there are many legitimate reasons)? How can we transform it to be a positive word?
4.   Right now, what specific area of your life needs more discipline? Why? And how can you go about bringing that positive discipline into the situation?
