God’s people must have a sense of awe when they come into his presence and assemble for worship. When people lose their sense of holy awe in approaching the Lord and begin to take him for granted, their spiritual lives will flounder. Such was the case with Israel in Malachi’s day. They had lost their sense of reverence for God and their worship had become shallow and superficial. Their devotion to God had deteriorated into a bad attitude about serving God. Both the priests and the people weren’t even remotely close to giving God their best. They needed to recapture their holy fire for God. Perhaps, some of us need to rekindle our holy awe for God and start giving God our best.
