A refining fire

  • Scripture: Mal 3:1-5
  • Location: St Paul's Cooma

Advent 2, Yr C
A promised messenger will come to prepare God’s people for the Lord who is the Covenant Messenger. In God’s time John the Baptist came to prepare the way for the Lord Jesus Christ, who did come to his temple, and who was the mediator of a new covenant. But his coming may not be pleasant in the short-term. He will come as a refining fire, to remove all dirt and all impurity, so that God’s people may again offer him acceptable worship. You may desire and welcome his coming. But are you ready for the blowtorch?
