Malachi 1

Have you ever felt spiritually empty, spent, tired, just going through the motions?  What do you do to restore your soul?

Malachi came at a time when the people of God needed to restore their worship.

God expects our greatest reverence.

  • We must recognize who He is, what He has done, and what He has promised to do.

God expects our best response.

  • Malachi told the people of God they could "do better than that."

God expects our highest regard.

  • Don't allow what is extraordinary to become ordinary.

God expects our warmest response.

  • Worship is not a duty to perform.  It is a privilege to participate in.

Our worship is not for God's benefit alone.  It is for our benefit, too.
