Good morning readers,
Well; it’s been a few weeks, almost a month, since I’ve done a post;and this morning I found a verse that we all can apply to our lives and get great comfort from. Let’s read this verse and I’ll discuss it a bit.
Malachi 3:6 KJV
“For I am the Lord , I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”
So just a touch on the earlier verses: The LORD is talking to Israel through Malachi about the coming messenger, other named of John the Baptist, because the word of God says that the messenger will “prepare the way” before him(Malachi 3:1)
Prophesied in Isaiah 40:3; and come to pass in Matthew 3:3; Mark 1:2+3; Luke 1:76, 3:4 and John 1:23.
After the first verse, in Malachi, about John the Baptist, the LORD goes into talking about Jesus and how he will judge Judah and Jerusalem for their sin and save those who had rejected him.
Then we go into this promise he makes to the sons of Jacob, and if you are a born again Christian,you are adopted into that family; and this is the promise: “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”
We have the assurance that, as a child of God, we are under the care and protection of God:but a warning it does not give us a free pass to sin and use the Grace of God any way we want.
By a closing note; I know, by personal experience, that Gods Grace isn’t something to mess around with. God gives us the amazing choice to serve,and be his child; but, as humans, we make mistakes, and with these mistakes we learn that God extends his hand of grace, and waits for us to return to him. There is a warning; if you live in sin, and have not confessed it, and renewed your life to Christ; there will be a time where the LORD says it is enough and take you home early.
I pray, and pray, that no one who reads these devotionals and take to heart what I say, will live a life that will bring that warning on your life.
Please take this advice by someone who knows what it is like to live in sin and live on the fence, and developed physical problems that I knew exactly why I had them happen.
Praying always for you all, and as the Paul ended all his notes to the Christian’s he reached out to: Galatians 6:18 KJV
“Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.”
