Sermon Text: Malachi 4:1-6


  1. Punishing the Proud (v.1)
  2. Play & Participate (vv.2-3)
  3. Pleasure in the Word of God & the Coming King (vv.4-6)

Reflection Questions:

  1. What does pride look like in your life?
  2. Write a one page answer to the questions: Do you want to stand (and even skip about like a liberated calf) in the presence of the Lord God Almighty? How do you expect to have such liberty in the presence of God? (unpack your answer in a robust and
    deeply reflective manner).
  3. Read Malachi 4:3. …How do you feel about the fact that you (if you are a true disciple of Jesus) will participate in this?
  4. Do you DELIGHT in God’s Word? Do you RELISH the Word of God? …if not, how do you expect to recognize Jesus when He comes?
