God has saved us so that we will live our lives in wholehearted worship of Him. The book of Malachi is about a time in Israel’s life where they failed to offer worship that was pleasing to God. They offered halfhearted worship instead of wholehearted worship. We are going to learn from their mistakes what it means to truly worship God so that we can live lives of wholehearted worship that is pleasing to God.
For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense will be offered to my name, and a pure offering. For my name will be great among the nations, says the LORD of hosts. – Malachi 1:11
