Week 5 – Return to Me
DIGITAL BULLETIN 29 January 2023, 10:30 a.m.
In this message, Pastor Brad Murphy continues the @EagleLifeChurch series “Return to Me” from the last book of the Old Testament, Malachi. In this series, you will start 2023 with faith to return to God in love, worship, faith, family, humility, justice, and blessing.
You will learn how God responds to suffering and how YOU can be an agent of God’s justice in our generation.
Join us as we return to God and pray for an awakening in our generation.
WORSHIP BY GIVING
“From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the Lord of hosts. But you say, ‘How shall we return?’”Malachi 3:7 (ESV, emphasis added)

SCRIPTURE: Malachi 2:17, 3:1-6; Matthew 11:13-14; Hebrews 4:15-16; Matthew 7:3-5; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (ESV)
You have wearied the Lord with your words. But you say, “How have we wearied him?” By saying, “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and he delights in them.” Or by asking, “Where is the God of justice?”Malachi 2:17 (ESV)
- What about SUFFERING?
- God is DOING something about suffering
- You are his AGENT of justice
“Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me. And the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant in whom you delight, behold, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts. 2 But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings in righteousness to the Lord. 4 Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in former years.
5 “Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.
6 “For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.Malachi 3:1-6 (ESV)
