The Wise Men
In week 2 of our Come Let Us Adore Him series, Pastor Glen Cox spoke about this part of the Christmas story which is rich in content and meaning. It reminds us all of one of the most incredible pilgrimages ever undertaken by mankind. Glen uses the example of a personal pilgrimage to draw a comparison and bring context to the need in every one of us to pursue those aspects of life that are important to us. This message dispels many common myths about the journey that these men took to discover the ‘King of the Jews’ some 2000 years ago.
This year @discoverychurch we are “meeting the people who met Jesus”
These wise men were not kings and were waiting for the great day when the star would shine from the east.
They knew the day was coming and once identified, had enough faith to follow this star. When you think about it, the first people to worship the young man Jesus, wasn’t the Jewish nation, whose capital was only 10 km away but a group of gentile astrologers from ancient Persia or Babylon who travelled for months for this very brief encounter. Amazing!
One thing we know for sure is once you meet the person of Jesus, you can never go back the way you came. Your life is changed forever!
