trinity sunday -

The Strong name

Psalm 8, 2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:16-20  At the center of the Gospel and the Christian faith is the doctrine of the Trinity. Without it, Christianity collapses. What difference does this doctrine make for us, especially when it is into that Name that we have been baptized, and in that name that we worship and are blessed?

does god love us?

Dr. Taylor begins a series on the prophet Malachi, the last book of the Old Testament. The message of Malachi came to the land of Judah in a time of spiritual and social malaise and decline. No longer an independent nation, Judah was a small province in the Persian Empire, where it seemed to many that God’s promises had played themselves out. Yet, in the message of Malachi was the promise that God was not yet finished with his people. Malachi 1:1-5: The book of Malachi begins with the people of God wondering if God loved them any more. This question, which lingered under the surface of the social life of Judah, is addressed openly by God through his prophet. Is it not a question that we ask ourselves today? Has God lost his love for us, our world, our society?

sloppy religion

Malachi 1:6-14  What happens when our religion gets sloppy?
God calls for us to give the best of who we are, and not just the “leftovers” of our lives.

Malachi 2:1-9  The sloppy religion of the people in Malachi’s day was matched by the corruption and uselessness of the priests. What happens when the cler-gy become not only useless, but lead people down the wrong paths?
