Pete Wilson was the founding pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee, a committed church community that he and his wife, Brandi, planted in 2003. Under his leadership, Cross Point grew to reach more than 7,000 people each weekend through its multiple campuses located around the Nashville area, and online. Pete gained national attention with his best-selling book, Plan B, a title that has been printed in five languages and launched Putting Plan B Into Action, a six-week DVD curriculum that serves as a study companion to the book. Empty Promises, Pete’s much-anticipated second book, followed.

Malachi ministered in perhaps the most difficult period of his nation’s history—a time of waiting for God’s promises to be fulfilled. Many people doubted that God cared or would act on their behalf. They had grown indifferent toward God and unfaithful in their covenant relationships with one another.To counter his people’s growing complacency and to call them to repentance and renewed faithfulness, Malachi used a series of searching questions, incredulous answers, and clinching arguments.
His messages drew clear and compelling contrasts between God’s faithfulness and their unfaithfulness, between God’s love and their apathy, between God’s unchanging purposes and their doubt.
This Bible Study is important because many believers today have become apathetic and complacent in their walk with God. God’s Word through Malachi continues to call His people to faithfulness and obedience in response to who God is and what He has done. As we wait for the second coming of Christ, we too must live in light of the nature of God as revealed through Christ and fulfill the expectations of a relationship with Him.
