You have wearied the LORD with your words. “How have we wearied him?” you ask. By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the LORD, and he is pleased with them” or “Where is the God of justice?” (Malachi 2:17, NIV 1984).
My Musings – Human nature, our sin nature, is so predictable. As Solomon might say, “nothing new under the sun.” Just different degrees. What was true in the late 5th century B.C. with Malachi’s generation is still true today. At some point in time, God will be more than wearied by our calling evil good (even in the eyes of God) and questioning the His justness. His grace will give way to wrath. Good will prevail and justice will be served.
My Advice – If you are in Christ, justice has already been served on your behalf. Jesus bore the penalty for you on the cross. Through His resurrection, God marked it paid in full. If you are not in Christ, grace is still available. But it is a limited time offer. The “degrees” mentioned above are heating up. The day of wrath is rapidly approaching. This generation might not pass away. So, there is an ever-increasing urgency to accepting God’s gift. It is critically important to act while you still can. Read my blog series “The Born Again Experience” for how you can do just that.
