God celebrates the faith of those who trust in Him with all that they own. Giving to God through our time, talent, and treasures isn't just about what we are giving but the heart behind it. To God, what you are giving from is more important than what you are giving too.

There is almost no better way to command absolute love for another person than to say, love them the way that you naturally love yourself. Even the people who say I hate myself - still at the deepest part of their heart desire their own well being. This text is not calling us to neglect ourselves either. Only to love our neighbor with the same type of tenacity, intentionality, commitment that we choose for ourselves.

Here’s what sin is; It’s taking our lives, made in the image of God, for God, by God and using all of our ability, our capacity, and our talent in rebellion against God. To live for our own praise, with our own purpose, in our own way. The consequence of this rebellion is death and separation. But the image that is marred in sin, is restored by the blood of the perfect image of God.

But Remember... Jesus came at a time when the Temple was still standing, when the Priesthood of Israel was still in effect, and when the sons of Aaron had charge over the sacrifices. The Cohanim Presented the Lambs for Sacrifice. So... shouldn’t there have been some connection, some recognition given by the priestly line. That the final and ultimate sacrifice had come?

Malachi 4 is God’s Loving Warning that a day is coming when God will judge sin. “For behold, the day is coming…” Is referring to the 2nd coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, not in peace, but to judge and wage war on sin. The Bible has spoken of “This Day” in many books like Isaiah, Revelation and 2nd Peter. Why would God warn us? BECAUSE HE LOVES US! In Christ, we are no longer under the coming judgement of sin, but as Malachi 4:2 says, “But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall.” That’s how much GOD LOVES US! Out of His Great Love, we are warned, now share with others, Hope & Salvation are found only in Jesus Christ!
