This Sunday at Mayfair, we heard the testimony of our Witness.
When was the last time you made an oath? These days, we don’t commonly find ourselves in situations that require oath-taking, but there are a few that come to mind.
Marriage, for instance, is one of the most famous oaths. The ceremony of a marriage may change with time and culture, but the principle has remained the same: a man and a woman, two people, two families, two histories become one through the bond of an oath.
Part of what makes this oath so special is that God is called to be a witness to it, and He takes that responsibility very seriously.
We learned from Malachi 2:10-16 today that Christianity’s not just about a personal relationship with God; it’s about all our relationships. The Israelite men couldn’t understand why God wouldn’t hear their worship, but God says it was simple: because of their unfaithfulness to their wives, a broken promise that the Lord had not forgotten.
These guys did everything “right” in the temple, but they became apathetic with the oaths they made before God.
How will you show God your fidelity this week?
