    Zechariah details the differences between a good and an evil shepherd.  He describes the great sorrow that is experienced by those who rejected Him.  The One they took for granted is the One they now desire most.  In our own lives, we can so easily become complacent and forget what a treasure Christ is.  God wants us to remember that our union with Him is all that matters

    Series: Zechariah
    In the first of 2 oracles, Zechariah describes the judgement of God on nations whose pride was in themselves, and the redemption of God’s chosen people through a saving King who will come in power and glory.  What should be our response to this news?  Are we taking pride in our own accomplishments?  Is our pride in the things of this world, or the finished work of Christ?

    Series: Zechariah
    Zechariah outlines the expected behavior of those who follow God.  This includes support for the poor, the fatherless, and widows.  However, without the Spirit of God, these efforts will succumb to the selfish intentions of man.  Concepts like socialism and communism may start with good intentions, but by seeking autonomy form God, they are doomed to failure.  Zechariah visions a people that fear God and enjoy truth and justice.  This is only possible in His Kingdom.

    Starting Small, Cleansing All (Zechariah 3:1-4:14)
    Series: Zechariah
    God’s plan goes far beyond the priesthood of Joshua and the Nation of Israel.  Zechariah introduces, “The Branch,” of whom Joshua is just a symbol.  Though Israel must start small, it is “the faith of a mustard seed” that produces a large tree.  The Kingdom of God encompasses the whole earth and features as its main feature, a wonderfully merciful God who plucks his people from the fire and washes them clean.

    A Jealous God (Zechariah 1:7-2:13)
    Series: Zechariah
    What does it mean that God is jealous?  When we think of jealousy we often think in selfish terms.  But is God capable of such a seemingly shallow emotion?  As Zechariah outlines God's plan for His people, we begin to get a better understanding that this "godly jealousy" is really the opposite of what we think.  God is jealous for you.  What does this mean for your life?
