Malachi 2:1-9 “Admonition to the Priests”
Sermon, September 22nd 2013

In the early 21st century in the western world people no longer trust institutions- the banks, the judiciary, the BBC, the Church… In Malachi’s day the Church could no longer be trusted.

It wasn’t just the ordinary people in Jerusalem who were at fault- it was the priests and ministers who colluded with the people and presented their sacrifices to the Sovereign Lord of hosts.

Where is the hope? They could change their ways- they could return to God’s word and restore God honouring worship. Malachi 2 is an admonition to the priests and ministers.
