Shut the door Part 1

Preacher: Pastor Trevor
Editor: Precious Adams

Don’t take the name of the Lord in vain for it is holy
Outline of Malachi
Privilege of the nation 1:1-5
Pollution of the nation 1:6 – 3:15
Promise for the nation 3:16 – 4:6

God has given the ways in which he should be worshiped not the way you would like to worship him
Malachi 1:6-14
God does not ask to offer what you don’t have. He asks for what you have. We need to give him the best of what we have
What is your purpose of coming to church?
We should come to church because of our love for God
Are you coming to church because you have to come or because you want to come?
Malachi 1:9
When you refuse to give God your best, it is a sin because you can give to the God and still insult him.
Is he the God who you give your leftovers to, or is he a God who deserves the best of your efforts and resources?
Malachi 1:10
Are you giving yourself as a living sacrifice or a dead sacrifice?
When Gods name is being defiled, we need to shut the door!
Make a stand and shut the door to all defilement
The holy ground is everywhere you go because the presence of the Lord lives in you
God’s grace is an enabling Grace not a permission to sin
Ask God what doors that are opened that needs to be shut in your life.
A tenth of whatever you earn belongs to the Lord.
Give God your best and he will treat you with favor.
