This is sermon #1 in our series through the minor prophet book of Haggai. In this message, Dr. Andrew White teaches through Haggai 1:1–15. After their return from exile in Babylon, the remnant of Israel began to rebuild the temple. However, discouragement caused them to abandon the project. Sixteen years later, God spoke through his prophet Haggai to stir the people up to finish His house. In this book, we are challenged to abandon spiritual apathy and pursue God’s Kingdom first.
