Sermon Series 58 Obedience Faith & Following Jesus

On this breezy Shabat day sermon we take a look at what it means to be obedient to Jesus and how that leads into following Jesus and what that means. We begin in Ezra 6:13-22 we read about how the 2nd temple was built and completed & the children of Israel out of the babylonian captivity were purified and seperated themselves to dedicate the temple and to keep the passover. We read that the prophets Haggai & Zecharaiah prophesied during this time. and we turned to Haggai to take a look at the 2nd chapter in verse 12 where we read about the clean and unclean Jesus asks "if one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment & do touch bread or pottage or wine or oil or any meat shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said no. In verse 14 " Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean" . We learn that this uncleaness comes from the world and from the other nations that practice things that we are not supposed to part take in . The Holy spirit speaks through us to let us know that we are an offering and can become unclean when we touch the abominations of the nations & world around us and in Hebrews 11 we read that our faith is a huge part of our offering that Jesus expects from us . Feel free to share comment & reflect.
