    Leftovers…Again (Malachi)
    The temple is complete. The walls are built. The people are secure. And God for some reason is not as important. That seems to be the human condition. We tend to want God when we are in trouble, but when things are good we tend to drift. In Malachi’s prophecy, God calls His people out for their complacency and then promises to visit them in a powerful way.

    Ancient Words…Future Focus (Zechariah 12-14)
    One of the difficult realities that people who have a sense of what may be coming in the future is that they are not always believed. As humans, we tend to focus on what we think we know, and what we think is a sure thing. From a survey of biblical history, we can tell that Zechariah’s final oracles were not heeded by the people of Israel. Maybe we can do better.

    The Leader You Have Always Longed For (Zechariah 9-11)
    Dr. John Maxwell said, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” There is much truth to that statement. Whether we are currently in a leadership position or are in a place where we are being led, we have a sense of what good leadership is about. In this section of Zechariah, we are introduced to one who will be the perfect leader. Our task will be to discover how we can emulate the leader we have longed for.

    Clean and Empowered (Zechariah 3-4)
    God does His work through His people. The enemy of God, Satan does all he can to discourage and discredit God’s people. But God in his grace, cleans and empowers us to be all we can be for Him. We see God at work in the process in Zechariah 3-4 for Joshua and Zerubbabel. As we look at this passage through the cross we discover that through Jesus God cleans and empowers us.

    A Passionate God (Zech. 1-2)
    God is passionate. God is passionate about one thing. He is passionate about His relationship with His creation. God is passionate about you. He is passionate about you and your relationship to Him and your relationship to the faith community. When we individually and collectively are fully invested in our relationship with God we find Him to be our comfort, our protector, and our confidence.

    Recheck Your Priorities (The Prophecy of Haggai)
    What would cause you to reprioritize your life, or your habits? What makes you rethink your circumstances? It seems that it often takes some sort of close call, or some kind of disaster to often make us evaluate what is really important. The challenges from Haggai, to God’s people who had returned to the land will help us take a good look at our own priorities and see where we may need to come back in line with God's standards.

    Responding to God’s Warning (The prophecy of Zephaniah)
    Tornado warnings. Hurricane warnings. Flood warnings. People respond differently. Some head for shelter, evacuate, or find the high ground. Others determine that they will “ride it out.” Natural disasters are no respecters of people, and the results of not heeding the warnings are tragic. God repeatedly warns his people that he will deal with their sins. Only those who respond in humble repentance are spared.

    When Nothing Seems To Make Sense (Habakkuk)
    If you have ever wondered if God knows what he is doing this prophet is for you. If you have ever questioned God, this prophet is for you. Habakkuk, has trouble with God's plan but in the end, he trusts God more than he trusts his circumstances. It is a lesson for us all..

    “No Middle Ground” (Nahum)
    God does not play games. God does not just give suggestions. When we last saw the Ninevites they had repented from their sin. God relented from his judgement of them. Unfortunately for the Ninevites, their revival did not last. Roughly, 100 years later they were as sinful and warmongering as ever. Nahum is God’s prophet to call them out. But before we gloat over the failure of Nineveh, we need to look in the mirror and ask, “Is my own commitment to God a growing daily reality?”

    There is Hope (Micah 6:9-7:20)
    Even though he is fully aware of our faults and failures, God still offers us hope. Our hope is in the God who knows the beginning from the end. We can't even know what this afternoon holds. Our hope is in a God who promises to forgive as we come to him in humility.

    The Power of Humility (Micah 5:1-6:8)
    The culture in which we live celebrates those who are confident. We celebrate those who dream and dream and then achieve it. But there is another quality that is to be celebrated but is often overlooked. There is a unique power to humility. When we are humble we rely on God for success. We depend on God and not our own wits. We treat others with dignity and respect. We are able to see how God has been working in us. God calls us to live humbly and trust him to recognize our work.

    It’s About Leadership (Micah 3:1-4:5)
    As the leaders go, so goes the group, be it a nation, or a community, or a church, or a family. Micah calls the leaders from the political, spiritual, and judicial realm to account. They were supposed to point people to God and lead by following God. But instead they had determined that personal power was more satisfying than servant leadership. We are all leaders of someone and God expects us to lead properly.

    Hold the Rope (Galatians; Philippians 3)
    Series: Other Voices
    Accountability is a two way street. We work together to hold one another accountable for following Jesus. However, we need to also take care of our own soul and see to it that we hold ourselves accountable for following Jesus as well. Philippians 3 reminds us of our responsibility for individual accountability. Galatians 6 points to our responsibility for being accountable in the community. Both are needed to live a godly life.

    Freedom to Change (Micah 1-2)
    The Prophet Micah had seen a great deal throughout his life. He had seen his nation, Judah go from a power house to a vassal of Assyria to a nation that successfully rebelled against the Assyrians. And yet in their relative freedom they had yet to come fully around to following God. Freedom for those who follow God is not doing anything they want; it is the freedom to change and learn to be more like God. Judah did not learn this lesson in Micah’s time.
