Malachi – God’s Messenger Preparing the Way

Beginning September 11th, 2011: Malachi – God’s Messenger Preparing the Way.

The New Testament begins with God’s messenger, John the Baptist, preparing the way for the coming of the Lord. His message is a call to repentance, a call to a new life lived differently in light of the coming of “The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). But not only does the New Testament open with this message, the Old Testament ends with the same message – the messenger of God, Malachi (whose name means “My Messenger”) anticipates the next step in God’s glorious plan of salvation – the coming of the Savior. Like John, Malachi helps us prepare the way. Join us for this study as we consider what it means for us to make ready the way of the Lord.
