Text: Malachi 2:17-3:5
We see in the book of Malachi God pleading with his people for more…to return to Him after testing His patience for so long. He stands as the gracious and merciful God, longing for His people, and yet He will not relent on His holiness and desire for purity for His people. In our text today, we see a clear picture of the Gospel with the promise of a coming forerunner to Jesus, and then ultimately Jesus Himself, and an explanation of what will happen when He comes. We also see a clear picture of the process of sanctification as our loving God purifies us with the Refiner’s Fire.
