Good Lord’s Day!

I heard a great sermon today! It was pretty much this: God loves, is faithful, even when we are not, he is patient! He was faithful to the Israelites, even when they were so un-grateful, so…so… SINFUL! The passage was on Malachi 1:1-5:

Malachi 1:1-5

“1 The oracle of the word of the Lord to Israel by Malachi.[a]

The Lord’s Love for Israel

 “I have loved you,” says the Lord. But you say, “How have you loved us?” “Is not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the Lord. “Yet I have loved Jacob but Esau I have hated. I have laid waste his hill country and left his heritage to jackals of the desert.” If Edom says, “We are shattered but we will rebuild the ruins,” the Lord of hosts says, “They may build, but I will tear down, and they will be called ‘the wicked country,’ and ‘the people with whom the Lord is angry forever.’”  Your own eyes shall see this, and you shall say, “Great is the Lord beyond the border of Israel!”

Isn’t it so amazing how much He loves us? What was your sermon about? Were you as convicted and encouraged (at the same time?) as I was when you read this passage? How has God showed love and mercy to you?

Also, things to think about:

1. The Exodus

2. God abounding, never-ending love

When you are in doubt, look to the scriptures, look to God, pray, believe…
