Sermon Notes

Malachi spoke to a disillusioned, discouraged, and doubting people. They seemed unable to harmonize their life experiences with the prophetic promises of God. Rather than enjoying a glorious Messianic age, they were impoverished, oppressed, and cynical about God and His promises. Malachi’s words confront these skeptical people who are living out their skepticism. Bad thinking and believing has turned into bad acting and living. This confrontation and encouragement is applicable in our day as well. One might well argue that American Christianity has become quite similar to the people of God to whom Malachi spoke.
