Day by Day Through the Bible: Four Days in Malachi - Digital Download
The theme of the Book of Malachi is a wake-up call to come back to covenant obedience. Malachi’s time was after the temple and the walls were rebuilt in Jerusalem by Ezra and Nehemiah. The people expected God’s favor to return but they were suffering crop failure, drought, and pestilence instead. It was not like the good old days under Solomon. People were not seeing, or experiencing, God’s presence or His glory. This 13-page devotion takes you through the four chapters of Malachi in four days.
Comment: The takeaways we get are: go to a Bible believing, Bible teaching, Bible preaching church. Secondly, be faithful to the sanctuary of God, worship Him alone, no idols in our lives. And, thirdly, honor our marriages, that special union where God makes two people one and pours in a portion of His Spirit in that union.
Prayer: Thank You that You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Thank You for the invitation to return to You and You will return to us. And thank You for the challenge You provide in this chapter to trust You with our money.
