First part talk about the character of the godly, of staying such in evil days and be motivated with strong zeal to be faithful , on having a good fear of God and how to know if one has it , on how the godly speak about things of faith examples of subjects are given, and also what does not belong there , and meditate on God's name frequently what he's like, his works, his mercy and so on.
In the second part the subject is what the good effects of this behavior is, how God reacts to our good conduct: He notices, records it, rewards it here and after life. A chapter on the difference between the righteous and the world-persons, and finally there's a short chapter of consolation for the afflicted believers, to strenghten them. This was a breeze to read - and this is true with some authors, that you know they write in a way that makes things flow smoothly. Another good sign was that I got many notes out of the text, especially the good fear of God part. There are religious books that are very good yet you don't get much to write down from them.
Kind of wish I had more of the author's books, but then I can reread after a while. Nov 16, Peter B. Watson is very clear in his exhortations. He doesn't beat around the bush. Just like the subtitle explains, this is a good collection of practical notes on Malachi 3: For example from page How may good conference [i.

In this work he lays down the case for godly living and of holy fear, for we, God's children, are his treasures, his for all eternity.

Jun 08, Iain Hamill rated it really liked it Shelves: Scattered with gems, of which the following probably jumped out the most for me: He who fears God considers how vain the world is, and therefore dares not love it; how short time is, and therefore dares not lose it; and how precious salvation is, and therefore dares not neglect it. Mar 20, Sarah rated it it was amazing. I loved this book. No one teaches like this anymore, but I loved it. I could only read a few pages at a time before I needed to go digest it.
It gave me a lot to think about and a good deal of repenting to do. Watson opens your eyes to truths you've never seen in the Bible before. He goes phrase by phrase through Malachi 3: I will definitely read more from this author. Dec 24, Kevin rated it it was amazing. Thomas Watson has never failed to encourage, convict, and galvanize me in my Christian pilgrimage, and this book is no exception. Even from the grave and through the centuries, he speaks clear and timely truth into my life.

Ultimately, because of God's grace to the saints in Christ, they have every motivation to life lives marked by holiness, set apart from the wickedness of the world. I was especially moved by the final chapter, which, based on Psalm His affliction is grace to them because he pulls them away from their sin, purges it from them, and prepares them to walk in holiness.
This book is highly recommended. Dec 27, Anthony Alvarado rated it it was amazing. Yet another great Puritan read. The first half of the book is Watson's thoughts on what is godliness and what it means to fear God. The second half is on the gain, the reward of godliness and our faith.
Chapters 6, 14, and 16 were my favorite. I'm still processing this book but a key takeaway has been even further encouragement to seek my satisfaction in God. He is the source of my praise, and of my glory.
