The Dawning of a New Day
Malachi 4: 1-6
God sent Malachi to get the people ready for a new day. Some will be ready, others not.
For those who fear the name of the Lord, the sun of righteousness will arise with healing in His wings, and they shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. Leaping at the joy of a new day.
1. The sun of righteousness, Jesus, has arisen from heaven and come down to be our Savior. Jesus is the sun of righteousness who rose from the dead to defeat death. And He is the sun of righteousness who will arise once more on the Last Day, when He will also raise all the dead and give to you and to all who are in Him eternal life.
But the people were not ready. They doubted God's love. They were despising His Name. They weren't offering worthy sacrifices to God. They weren't paying their tithes. And they were accusing God of injustice!
So God, in love, sent Malachi to them to call them to repentance. To repent of what they were doing. To repent of what they thought of Him.
With the tabernacle and the sacrifices, God was calling His people to straighten up, raise their heads, and look for the day their Savior would rise up. The Commandments would show them their sin; the tabernacle would show them their Savior.
2. God does not want you to doubt, be unprepared for that day, or fear that day. So God sends His Elijah, John the Baptist, that we be ready. He will proclaim repentance; he will point to Jesus: "The Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world." (John 1:29)
That Lamb washes us clean in our fonts (Baptism), and comes to us on the altar. When the sun of righteousness arises, when Jesus comes back again, that day will be a day of forgiveness and joy. And as He is risen, so are you. Each day is a new day in Him. Each day dying to sin and rising in Him to live a new life. A day to serve others, never growing weary of doing good.
