Responding Well to God’s Word Preached (Malachi 3:16-18)
God’s Word demands a response from His people. How should we respond to His Word preached?
A. Come prepared to hear a message from God (try not to focus on the messenger so much as the message).
B. Fellowship with each other (as a means to applying the Word of God to real life)
C. Remember that God’s Glory is the chief end of our response to His Word (that others might give glory to God)
D. Understand your position as a son/daughter of God (a child receiving instruction from His/Her Father)
E. Be mindful of the long view (it helps with obedience today)

16 Then those who feared the Lord spoke with one another. The Lord paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the Lord and esteemed his name. 17 “They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. 18 Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him.
