Prepare the Way Worship Series, week 2: REFINE
The word “refine” is the primary focus this week. It stems from the effects of the coming messenger’s work. It is a call to renewal on the part of God’s people. It is not so much the idea of punishment as it is the idea of being convicted in light of the Great Day of the Lord and a time of a new beginning. The prophet concludes with a promise of hope, “...I will not come and strike the land with a curse” (Malachi 4:5).
- Malachi 3:1-4
- Luke 1:68-79 (UMH 208)
- Philippians 1:3-11
- Luke 3:1-6
