Malachi 3:16 (The Message)
Then those whose lives honored GOD got together and talked it over. GOD saw what they were doing and listened in. A book was opened in God’s presence and minutes were taken of the meeting, with the names of the GOD-fearers written down, all the names of those who honored GOD’s name.
What amazing words these are! In Malachi, God was accusing His people of seven sins against Him. He wanted them to repent. And in the very last part of Malachi, the people who feared God began discussing earnestly with each other what they should do.
And God eavesdropped.
That’s not all. Immediately, God ordered a book to be opened, names were recorded, and sweet conversations about God were recorded for all eternity.
God goes crazy with joy when His people talk about Him to each other. No conversation about Jesus is ever wasted. God hears and remembers that you honour His name.
