Sermon Text: Malachi 1:1-14


  1. Not Feeling the Love (vv.1-4)
  2. Forsaking Our First Love (vv.6-14a)
  3. Fixation (vv.5, 11, 14b)

Reflection Questions:

  1. Do you struggle to believe that God & His Word are actually real & relevant to your everyday life? What does that struggle look like?Where (and when) do you go all-out – as if your life depended on it?


  2. Read Jeremiah 29:13, Matthew 6:33, Romans 14:23, and Hebrews 11:6. What are these verses saying about where God wants to rank on our list of ‘What’s Real, Relevant, and Relishable’? Is God being unrealistic in expecting this from us?


  3. Read Genesis 32:24-30. Do you fight with this kind of desperation & determination to know God (John 17:3) and see Him face to face?
