Lesson 7: May 12-18

‘Will he be pleased with thee?’

 

3. What fearful words does the Lord utter concerning those who give service to God in the hope of something that will benefit them?  Malachi 1:10.

NOTE: ‘Through messages such as those borne by Malachi, the last of the Old Testament prophets, as well as through oppression from heathen foes, the Israelites finally learned the lesson that true prosperity depends upon obedience to the law of God. But with many of the people, obedience was not the outflow of faith and love. Their motives were selfish. Outward service was rendered as a means of attaining to national greatness.’ Prophets & Kings, page 708.

 

4. How does God describe those who do not give of their best to the Lord?  Malachi 1:6-8.

NOTE: ‘Let us give careful heed to these warnings and reproofs. Though addressed to ancient Israel, they are no less applicable to the people of God today. And we should consider the words of the apostle in which he appeals to his brethren, by the mercies of God, to present their bodies, “a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God.” This is true sanctification. It is not merely a theory, an emotion, or a form of words, but a living, active principle, entering into the everyday life. It requires that our habits of eating, drinking, and dressing, be such as to secure the preservation of physical, mental, and moral health, that we may present to the Lord our bodies, not an offering corrupted by wrong habits, but “a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God.”’ Counsels on Diets & Foods, page 164.
