Today’s reading from Malachi 3:1-4 prepares the way for Jesus to come at Christmas by calling listeners to repent of their sin, and to be refined and purified by God. Pastor Paige continues our Advent sermon series, “Unafraid," with stories of how our sin persistently clings to us like dust and dirt. The power of darkness wants to keep us afraid. And yet, God is more powerful than sin and death. We can be unafraid because soon and very soon, Jesus will be born. He will come to die for our sins and make us new.
