Spiritual drift happens gradually. Few people wake up one day and suddenly decide to stop following God. Rather, it’s the busyness of life, even in the midst of spiritual practices, that our hearts can turn cold and cause us to wander from God. The prophet Malachi brought a strong message to God’s people who had fallen into spiritual apathy. He wanted them to wake up and renew their passion for the Lord before it was too late.


In this sermon, we explore three characteristics of God’s love. The root of spiritual apathy is forgetting God’s love. To remain spiritually engaged, we need to remind our souls how much God loves us.


  1. God’s love is unchanging
  2. God’s love is unconditional
  3. God’s love is unlimited


Malachi 1:1-5
