“They bowed down

and worshiped him”

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

Humbled themselves, acknowledged Jesus as the new “Lord”

of their lives.


Epiphany sunday

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


Epiphany sunday

Matthew 2:11b

“They opened

their treasures…”

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

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


Epiphany sunday

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.


Epiphany sunday

Luke 3:8

“Produce fruit in keeping

with repentance.”

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

Attitudes & Actions will change

when we keep a Repentant Heart.


Epiphany sunday

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.


Epiphany sunday

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

This will be a God-led “revolution”!


Epiphany sunday

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

-  Narcotics Anonymous


Epiphany sunday

Starting next week,

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.
