In Malachi at chapter 3. verse 1, we read: “Behold I send a messenger and he shall prepare the way before me. ”
The prime task of a messenger is to carry what one person carries to another person. The words that the messenger speaks are not his own words they are the words that have come from God, they could be words of warning or words
of encouragement but what mattered in the times of the early messengers matters every bit as much today, they are God’s words.
It is the responsibility of ministers and other church leaders to proclaim the Gospel to the world. .
As we prepare to celebrate the third Sunday of Advent, lighting the third pink coloured candle symbolising JOY. We add this to the HOPE, and the LOVE we experience and express as we eagerly look forward to the coming of Christ into our lives.
