HOW HAVE WE DEFILED GOD?

Pastor Dennis Sallis, December 8th, 2013

A son honors his father , and a servant his master.  If I am a father where is the honor due me?  If I am a master, where is the respect due me?” says the LORD Almighty.  It is you, O priest, who show contempt for my name.“But you ask, ‘How have we shown contempt for your name?’  “You place defiled food on my altar.  But you ask, ‘How have we defiled you?  (Malachi 1:6-7)

By not honoring Him:

Honor God (Psalm 22:23) (1 Timothy 1:17)

Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops;  (Proverbs 3:9)

By not respecting Him:

Respect God (Deuteronomy 8:6)

And now, O Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and to observe the LORD’S commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good. (Deuteronomy.10:12)

Not giving God your best:

Give God your best (Ecclesiastes 9:10)  (Colossians 3:17)

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.  (1 Timothy 2:15)

KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW
