November 30, Malachi 3:1

“Look! I’m sending my messenger on ahead to clear the way for me. Suddenly, out of the blue, the Leader you’ve been looking for will enter his Temple—yes, the Messenger of the Covenant, the one you’ve been waiting for. Look! He’s on his way!”

Malachi 3:1 MSGA verse of the day from the Bible presented in Eugene Peterson’s contemporary version called The Message. Accompanied by a personal reflection below.

Messengers bring news — both good and bad.  In this case, the Messenger is Jesus the Christ, and he brings good news.  I hope that you will pause this Christmas season to consider what that message might be.
