Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Malachi 3:6


3:6 I change not - I have an unchangeable hatred to sin: and my long suffering also changeth not, therefore you are not consumed in your sins. Not consumed - God is the same in his wisdom to order the rewards of good and bad in the fittest season, therefore neither the one nor the other are consumed, but preserved to the season appointed of God.

    Do as Zacchaeus; Luke19 Get to know the Lord better by reading your Bible an average of 5 days/week about 20 Min. Before you start reading, ask him to reveal himself to you You will know how much God really loves you, be healed and empowered to fulfill his purpose for your life - Philipians 2:13 . Meet at a church. Hebrew 10:25

    peter ndubusi the best place to start is to pray to God in the Name of Jesus to lead you and ask Him what you should do. Roman 3:23 tells us we all fall short of the Glory so nobody is perfect, As Christians we fall . we pray for forgiveness. we pray for strength to resist temptation we try to do what Jesus said and live by the ten commandments.Trust in God for everything Talk to God ,
