What God Despises
June 06, 2021 | Thom Rainer
Passage: Malachi 1:6-14
We learn how to love and serve God more deeply by loving what He loves and despising what He despises.
What God despises:
- For us not to honor Him (v6). Many Christians expect God to meet our expectations rather than to serve Him and meet His expectations.
- For us to not give God our best (v7-11). Anytime we do not give God our best, we have created an idol to worship.
- For us to justify our actions (v12-14). Weak faith is demonstrated when we attempt to justify our actions to God.
We are going to step into the book of Malachi for the next 4 weeks. God has a message for His people. God is going to tell him that He loves them and that He will always love them. This is still true today. Series Emphasis: Your faith grows when you love what God loves.
