21 Days of Prayer
In our 21 Day journey in prayer, we looked at several important principles—essential for experiencing the life God intends for you.

Intro Growing up, how many of you heard the warning, “Don’t talk to strangers!”? Some have argued that this is bad advice if a child is lost or injured. They have said that such advice should be qualified with, “If you get lost or are injured, find a mommy to help you.” That’s good advice too, but I…

Relationships can be extremely difficult especially when you are treated poorly and unfairly. Some people go from one bad relationship to another trying to find that one relationship that will be perfect. Perfect relationships don't exist, so when the struggles continue, we are often left with bitterness; never wanting to have meaningful relationships again. So instead of getting bitter and angry, we need to apply the salve of grace and allow God to work in and through us.

After summarizing Israel’s sin and God’s grace in v. 16-17; he recounts the story of God’s patience and mercy. He describes three examples in Israel’s history that demonstrates how in mercy God did not forsake Israel. It is meant to be a praise to God and a reminder to the people.
Grace is the key to open the Bible. We must stop asking what is lawful according to Jesus and what is unlawful. Instead, we must ask what is gracious and what is not gracious. We are saved by grace alone. We must live by grace alone. As recipients of grace, let us grace it forward.

When life gets hard and our expectations of God go unmet, we can begin to lose confidence in the reliability and justice of God. This was true in Malachi’s day and our text delivers a clear answer to the skepticism of his audience. His answer ought to buttress our hope as well. In the heart of our text is the principle upon which we ground our hope that God will keep every promise he has made—“I the LORD do not change” (3:6).
