Return to God

Malachi (Messenger)

Alyssa Carey

05/09/22

Alyssa speaks from Malachi.

Malachi means ‘my messenger’ and through this message we learn about the covenant between God and his people (2:10) which is like a living relationship between a father and son. But this relationship broke down and Malachi looks forward to future ‘messenger of the covenant’ (3:1) who will make God’s people righteous. Malachi teaches us not to be lukewarm about God, but to hunger and thirst after Him.
