Will You Return to God?

In Malachi’s time, the people of Israel denied their sins and instead claimed that the Lord had abandoned them. In this week’s message, Ptr. Genesis Tan reminds us that our God is unchanging and that it is our disobedience that has caused us to drift away from Him. It’s time that we reflect, repent, and return to Him.
