There are many “First Day” passages in the Scripture, an when we find them they make two basic statements. 1. Newness: God did something NEW for His people and called it “THE FIRST DAY”. 2. Priority: His people made Him their PRIORITY, and so He did something NEW for them on “THE FIRST DAY”. In fact, all “first days” noted in Scripture speak of NEW BLESSINGS from God – when – NEW PRIORITIES to obey Him and to serve Him are set.
Notes – PPT
Haggai’s message is timeless, “Make God’s House Your Priority” (Haggai 1:8). Today, the house of God is more significant than the temporary structure of the Jewish Temple. Today, God’s glory fills, not a building, but a people (1 Cor 3:10-11, 16-17; 1 Pet 2:5; Eph 3:21). The church is God’s temple, a people who are to bring Him pleasure and show His glory. Haggai is pointing at the church, the people of God, and saying “Make God’s House Your Priority!” To do that, we must devote ourselves to building up people (lives) that will be proper dwelling places for God.
