As we come to the end of Malachi, a final question is presented: why bother serving God when evildoers do as they please and get away with it? vv. 13-18 The distinction between two different types of people is given here. The differences essentially come down to their attitudes towards God: those who choose to disobey him (vv.13-15) and those who fear him (vv.16-17). There is no third alternative; either you serve God, or you don't (v18). vv. 1-3 These distinctions are significant because of the coming day of judgment ("For behold" v1), when there will be different outcomes for those who do not fear God (v1) and those who do (vv.2-3). Fire will consume those who oppose God. But for those who fear his name, healing and joy awaits them. vv. 4-6 The oracle of Malachi concludes with an urge to remember the commandments given in the past, and to await the promised messenger who will prepare the way before the great and awesome day of the LORD. Application At times we may be tempted to look at the world around us and wonder if following Christ is really worth the effort. But be assured that the day of judgment will come. For Christians to persevere and keep going in the present, they ought to look to the future and the promise of what awaits them there.

Malachi
Malachi 3:13-4:6
OT
esv
"Your words have been hard against me, says the LORD.
But you say, 'How have we spoken against you?'
You have said, 'It is vain to serve God. What is the profit of our keeping his charge or of walking as in mourning before the LORD of hosts? And now we call the arrogant blessed. Evildoers not only prosper but they put God to the test and they escape.'"
questionanswer
concessive
Then those who feared the LORD spoke with one another.
The LORD paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the LORD and esteemed his name.
"They shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him.
Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him.

"For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble.
The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts,
so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.
actionresult
But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings.
You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall.
And you shall tread down the wicked,
for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet,

"Remember the law of my servant Moses, the statutes and rules that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel.
"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.
And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers,
lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction."
