Read Malachi 3:11-18
I. THE LORD REMEMBERS HIS OWN VERSE 16.
II. THE LORD REJOICES OVER HIS OWN VERSE 17.
We are His children, servants, stewards, witness, friends, and ambassador and now… we are HIS JEWELS! “I will make up my jewels.”
In other words:
A. I have PURCHASED them.
B. I will POLISH them.
Just like a diamond is cut and polished. I will polish or clean you. Think of it, it costs you something to be a jewel for Him. You lose a part of the diamond, just like you lose a part of your life to follow Him.
C. I will PROOVE them.
D. I will PROVIDE for them.
III. THE LORD WILL RETURN FOR HIS OWN.
There is a separation coming 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.
Then we will see the proof of the fact that it, PAYS TO SERVE JESUS!
