Wesley's Notes for Malachi 1:12

Discussion for Malachi 1

  • Doublenjay
    We have to remain as living sacrifices pure and holy before our God. Our God is holy and He demands that we be holy. Anything which is not holy is disgusting before God. We must also walk in righteousness and obedience. These are the sacrifices which God is looking from us to give Him with a clear conscious.
  • A disciple
    "And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil?" How is it that so many fancy themselves saved Christians, yet have no idea or care about God's absolute hatred and intolerance of sin and uncleanness? And if any rebuke the sin and protest to them out of the Scriptures, they cry out in self defense, You're full of pride! You're so mean!

    Verse 8: They were not giving God their best. In order for our sacrifices to be pleasing to God, we must give him our best.
