Epiphany

Sunday


“Epiphany”

“To show,

make known, reveal, or to shine forth”

Celebrating the revelation of God in the Incarnation of Jesus Christ.


Epiphany

Sunday

Reflecting on the visit of the Magi to the infant Jesus; who were following a new star that was “shining forth” hope.


  • Matthew 2: 1-12

  • Magi track new star of the Messiah

  • They meet King Herod in Jerusalem

  • They Find Baby Jesus in Bethlehem

  • Warned by God not to tell Herod,

  • they return home on a different path


The Magi showed 3 Marks

Of True Commitment

to Jesus.


Matthew 2:11a

“They bowed down

and worshiped him”

---------------------------

Humbled themselves, acknowledged Jesus as the new “Lord”

of their lives.


2 Timothy 3: 2-4

2 “People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God”


"If you keep on doing

what you've always done,

you'll keep on getting

what you've always got." -  W. L. Bateman


Matthew 2:11b

“They opened

their treasures…”

---------------------------

Recognized that all of their resources were now to be available to the Kingdom of God.


Matthew 2:12b

“They returned

to their country

by another route”

---------------------------

They listen to and heed God’s Direction and are changed by their experience.


Luke 3:8

“Produce fruit in keeping

with repentance.”

-----------------------------------------------

Attitudes & Actions will change

when we keep a Repentant Heart.


The terrifying reality is that the Magi will return to their pagan land with a transformed heart, but will have to intentionally work hard to stay connected to God’s Plan for their lives.


These life changes will not be pagan land with a self-focused “resolutions” that are fueled by their own will power and driven by guilty feelings.

This will be a God-led “revolution”!


" pagan land with a Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results."

-  Narcotics Anonymous


Starting next week, pagan land with a

we will begin a new Sermon Series

that will help us

follow a New Path…

A Different Path where we are freed up from the “clutter” of life and unleashed for

God’s Kingdom.
