“I have loved you, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? Saith the Lord: yet I loved Jacob, And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness” (Malachi 1:2-3).
We first consider God’s love. It is known by the declaration of it and by his care for his people.
We then observe the people’s response. They had become cynical and were bold enough to question God’s love for them.
And finally we see divine sovereignty. Many give lip service to believing in God’s sovereignty but when it comes down to the details of God’s purposes they draw back if it doesn’t suit their view of how God ought to operate.
