Sermon: Malachi 3:1-4, Luke 3:1-6

I have posted my sermon from yesterday on my sermon blog. It’s a Second Sunday in Advent sermon based on Malachi 3:1-4 and Luke 3:1-6 and entitled “Christmas Greetings”.

Here’s a potion of it:

Advent is the time in the Christian year for us to take a closer look at our lives and see what we must do to be truly ready to welcome Christ into our lives –¬ and look at the whole idea of a real change in our lives – a cleansing – a change of attitudes – a change of actions – a change of heart – that whole attitude of repentance and turning back to God.
This is so vital – so important.
Friends – the greetings Malachi and John – greetings of cleansing — repentance – righteousness – and change are truly the Christmas greetings that can make a difference in our lives and our community.
The greetings Malachi and John – greetings of cleansing — repentance – righteousness – and change are truly the Christmas greetings that can make a difference in your life and the lives of others around you.
So – the question is – how do you respond to the Christmas greetings of Malachi and John?
Do they make a difference in your life?
Do you let the greetings of greetings of cleansing — repentance – righteousness – and change sink in?
Do you let your life be cleansed by God?
Have you really listened to these greetings God is giving you?
If you have, and let them make a difference in your life, then your life will be changed. You will be a different person. You will be God’s person. If you haven’t, then – like Malachi warned – you will not be able to stand it when God comes.
