Malachi 4:2-6 • sermon notes below
The day of the Lord is a time when our Heavenly Father will make all things right.
– The day of the Lord has already come in Christ, and will fully come when Christ returns.
When earthly fathers are filled with the Spirit of the Heavenly Father, they will experience His Fatherhood and express His Fatherhood.
Children long for and need fathers who express the nature of our Heavenly Father.

Our Response: God is the perfect Father for whom we long; receive his fatherly love, and trust him to empower you to express his life-giving love to others.
