Malachi 1:1-5 “God’s Covenant Love”
Sermon, August 8th 2013

In Church people make promises: baptisms, weddings, confirmations. In the Bible we discover that God makes promises to people through covenants. He makes a covenant of love with his Old Testament people through Abraham and then in the New Testament through Jesus. Under God’s covenant of love, God calls his people to live distinctive lives – in the Old Testament through God’s law and in the New Testament through the teaching of Jesus.
