Be Strong and Do the Work

by Chris Russell

The Time is Now week two message from Pastor Chris Russell on April 30, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana. With God's help, I will choose the difficult right over the easy wrong. God wants to make sure that the people understand that they are never alone when they are seeking to serve him... Haggai 1:13-14 But the people - who started out with a vision and drive became discouraged. So God sent Haggai to ask them some very specific questions... Haggai 2:3 The people being caught up in their discouragement found themselves there because of two causes that can still affect us as well today: 2 Causes of Discouragement: 1. Comparisons 2. Lack of Progress Remember - we need to focus on steps 1-3 before we move on to step 4, 5, 6, and so on...God is our great encourager in this... Haggai 2:4 So what was God's instruction for them and also for us? BE STRONG, DO THE WORK And what is the promise of God if we are faithful in doing this? Galatians 6:9 REAP THE HARVEST But we will do so at the proper time when we have done the work! God has the upper story perspective and we have the lower story perspective. But if we trust his perspective then our choices will reflect it. BE STRONG, DO THE WORK!
