Week 2 – Return to Me
DIGITAL BULLETIN 08 January 2022
In this message, Pastor Brad begins the @EagleLifeChurch series “Return to Me” from the last book of the Old Testament. In this series, you will start 2023 with faith to return to God in love, worship, faith, family, humility, justice, and blessing.
In this sermon, you learn how to give God great worship. In a generation where people mock God’s honor, defile His table, and scoff at His praise, we will learn to give him our first and best with honor and cheerfulness.
Join us as we return to God and pray for an awakening in our generation.

“A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am a father, where is my honor? And if I am a master, where is my fear? says the Lord of hosts to you, O priests, who despise my name. But you say, ‘How have we despised your name?’ 7 By offering polluted food upon my altar. But you say, ‘How have we polluted you?’ By saying that the Lord’s table may be despised. 8 When you offer blind animals in sacrifice, is that not evil? And when you offer those that are lame or sick, is that not evil? Present that to your governor; will he accept you or show you favor? says the Lord of hosts. 9 And now entreat the favor of God, that he may be gracious to us. With such a gift from your hand, will he show favor to any of you? says the Lord of hosts. 10 Oh that there were one among you who would shut the doors, that you might not kindle fire on my altar in vain! I have no pleasure in you, says the Lord of hosts, and I will not accept an offering from your hand.Malachi 1:6-10 (ESV)
- Worship with HONOR
- Worship with Your FIRST & BEST
- Worship with CHEERFULNESS
11 For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense will be offered to my name, and a pure offering. For my name will be great among the nations, says the Lord of hosts. 12 But you profane it when you say that the Lord’s table is polluted, and its fruit, that is, its food may be despised. 13 But you say, ‘What a weariness this is,’ and you snort at it, says the Lord of hosts. You bring what has been taken by violence or is lame or sick, and this you bring as your offering! Shall I accept that from your hand? says the Lord. 14 Cursed be the cheat who has a male in his flock, and vows it, and yet sacrifices to the Lord what is blemished. For I am a great King, says the Lord of hosts, and my name will be feared among the nations.Malachi 1:11-14 (ESV)
