Malachi 3:6-18


PONDER

They shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels.”—Mal. 3:17.


A DAY is coming in which the crown jewels of our great King shall be counted, that it may be seen whether they answer to the inventory which his Father gave him. My soul, wilt thou be among the precious things of Jesus? Thou art precious to him if he is precious to thee, and thou shalt be his “in that day,” if he is thine in this day.

In the days of Malachi, the chosen of the Lord were accustomed so to converse with each other that their God himself listened to their talk. He liked it so well that he took notes of it; yes, and made a book of it, which he lodged in his Record Office. Pleased with their conversation, he was also pleased with them. Pause, my soul, and ask thyself: If Jesus were to listen to thy talk would he be pleased with it? Is it to his glory and to the edification of the brotherhood? Say, my soul, and be sure thou sayest the truth.

But what will the honour be for us poor creatures to be reckoned by the Lord to be his crown jewels! This honour have all the saints. Jesus not only says, “They are mine,” but, “They shall be mine.” He bought us, sought us, brought us in, and has so far wrought us to his image, that we shall be fought for by him with all his might.


 Spurgeon, C. H. (1834-1892).


PRAY

After a moment of quietness, let the Spirit of God lead you as you pray for 5 people who you would love to see become followers of Jesus Christ, or people who you know have strayed from God. Name them before the Lord, asking God to reveal Himself to them, and that He would draw them in grace, mercy and love to trust and follow Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. 


Close your prayer time with the Lord’s Prayer:


Our Father, who art in heaven, 

Hallowed be Thy name. 

Thy kingdom come. 

Thy will be done 

on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day 

our daily bread. 

And forgive us our debts, 

as we forgive our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil. 

For Thine is the kingdom, 

and the power, and the glory, 

for ever. Amen.
