Malachi 2

Mountain21

Here are two verses from Malachi 2 that I felt that I needed to share with you:

Verse 5: We are priests. We have a responsibility to follow God. To be true to His word, to live a life that honours Him.

We are supposed to share our knowledge and love of Christ with everyone.

But how can we do this if our lives don’t reflect Him?

We need to change our attitudes and belief that just being a Christian is enough, we need to live like Christians too!

“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”  1 Peter 2:9

Verse 10: We, as Christians, have something in common. We have the same father, we are family!

If this is true, why do we fight so much? Why is there so little love and grace between us?

Our bond should be far greater than blood, race or gender. Our love for Christ and the fact that He is our father should be an unbreakable glue that binds us together.

Gift of Life

Christmas is an awesome time of the year where we remember the gift that God has given us. A gift of love, grace, hope, and forgiveness.

The gift of life.

Jesus Christ is God’s gift to us. Nothing can even come close to it.

Imagine being born to punished, to suffer and die for someone else’s wrong, even though you were innocent. Jesus was born to be a sacrifice. To be a way to God. He did all of this because He loves us so much.

God has given you a choice, a gift of life. Will you take it?

My Weakness Shows God’s Power

We all know we have flaws and weaknesses (no matter how much we would rather deny them). But instead of feeling shame and trying to hide them, why not put them out in the light for the world to see?

Hehe yeah, I know that sounds crazy, but if you do this, you will allow God’s strength and power to be displayed through you.

Through our faults, we learn to rely more and more on God, because we realise that we can’t do life in our own strength. We survive, no…We flourish in life through Christ.

People will see this…they will see how we turn to God, how we trust Him. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, especially from God.

“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.” Corinthians 4:7

“Each time he said, My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”  Corinthians 12:9-10

Saved Today or Tomorrow

Someone asked me why is it that if a person, who has lived a life of ungodliness, becomes a Christian on his death bed, would get the same ending of that as a person who became a Christian from a young age and lived a life for Christ.

I honestly had no answer. It doesn’t seem fair, does it?

The very next day I read Matthew 20:1-15. In this passage, Jesus tells a story about a landowner (God) who hired people (us) throughout the day, at different times. (Different stages of our lives when we come to Christ) At the end of the day (When we die) the landowner paid each person a full day’s wage (Forgiveness and grace to enter the kingdom of God).  The people that had worked the whole day (whole life) they complained to the landowner and said it wasn’t fair to receive the same amount as those that had only worked for a few hours. (This is how my friend felt)

None of us deserve to be forgiven. None of us deserve God’s grace. But God promises to forgive those that truly ask for it. He doesn’t have a cut-off date, i.e.: only those under the age of twenty can be saved or that you must have lead a sort of good life. No. God gives grace to any age and he forgives all sins, no matter how many there might be.

All we have to do is just ask Him.

By the way, what do we know about fairness? God’s fairness isn’t the same as ours. why are we to be upset when God saves a person? We should celebrate that another soul is safe, no matter how long it took to get saved.
