Lord, I Want My Name On This Scroll—Malachi 3:16-18

images-5

Today’s Scripture Reading: Malachi 2:10-4:6, Joel 1:1-3:21

Heavenly Father, this is who I want to be—a person who fears You and always thinks about the honor of Your name. I want to be Your special treasure.

Then those who feared the Lord spoke with each other, and the Lord listened to what they said. In his presence, a scroll of remembrance was written to record the names of those who feared him and always thought about the honor of his name.

“They will be my people,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “On the day when I act in judgment, they will be my own special treasure. I will spare them as a father spares an obedient child. Then you will again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.” —Malachi 3:16-18

Lord, I have failed You many times. Show me when my heart begins to stray. I want to serve You in a way that honors Your name for the rest of my life.

In Jesus Name. Amen and Amen!

Hate Change? Remember This One Thing—Malachi 3:6

Today’s Scripture Reading:  Malachi 2:10-4:6; Joel 1:1-3:21

Do you like change?

Most people don’t.

Sometimes things change for the good and some times change makes things worse.

Either way, change is a gamble.

How do we live in a world where change is the only constant thing in life?

We stay close to the One who does not change—

I am the Lord, and I do not change.  –Malachi 3:6

It is so fitting that God told us He doesn’t change on the last day of our chronological reading of the Old Testament.

As I think back over our 266 days of reading, the unchanging goodness of God is the overarching message of the Old Testament with the unchanging sinfulness of mankind as a close second.

It’s really ironic that we’re constantly changing but our sinful nature can’t be changed…

Until

We meet our Savior—Jesus Christ…

Which we are about to do in tomorrow’s reading.

What have you learned in these 8 months and 23 days?

Here are my take a ways from our Old Testament journey:

  • Jehovah God is the one, true, living God of the universe
  • Man inherently sinful—we can’t be “good” on our own
  • We  need a savior
  • Our God will use extreme measures to rescue us

AND

God does not change

Heavenly Father, I’m so thankful that You are my unchanging God.  My desire is to stay close to You as You lead me through the maze of change in this sinful world.  Jesus, I can’t wait to spend the rest of the year learning about Your gift of salvation.  Holy Spirit, draw us to Your Word.

In Jesus’ Name.  Amen and Amen.
