Malachi ends with a great summary of two kinds of people: those who are righteous and follow God, and those who do not. It becomes a question for Israel and for us today, how shall we live? For God, or not?
Listen to the latest sermons from New City Church:
We give because God is generous to us, we give because he gave his only son to be poor, so we could be rich in him. God’s people should be a generous people.
We are called to love Lord as one loves a father. This familial love can only pour out in praise as we stand in awe (fear) of his immense power and perfection, especially when seeing his perfect love on the cross.
