In the last book of the Old Testament, God reveals the difference between how He established the priesthood with Levi and what was currently happening in Israel at the time of Malachi. In his day, the priests had despised the name of the Lord, profaned the Lord’s table by offering polluted offerings, and brought lame animals for the sacrifices. In short, their worship was so far from the original purpose of worship, they were robbing God, rather than giving Him glory.
Read the original design: “My covenant with him was one of life and peace, and I gave them to him. It was a covenant of fear, and he feared me. He stood in awe of my name. True instruction was in his mouth, and no wrong was found on his lips. He walked with me in peace and uprightness, and he turned many from iniquity” (Malachi 2:5–6).
The more you and I live in “awe” of His name and glory, the more our words will reflect that glory! The manifestation of that glory will be seen by others through the way we speak of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior!
