Time is ticking
v.2 You who revere my name .. will go out and leap like calves released from the stall
The last two chapters of Malachi don’t pull any punches. Judgement is coming and “All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble … and for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings.” There’s no middle ground but there is the promise of God’s messenger coming to turn hearts to him.
If we are secure in our faith and the gift of eternal life the day of judgement is one of great excitement. For those we love who don’t yet know Jesus it’s a different proposition entirely so let’s do all we can to ensure they can ‘leap like calves released from the stall’ alongside us!
Lord I thank you for the gift of eternal life. Guide me in showing your love to those around me, that they might share in this gift and know your saving grace. Amen.
