Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

January 3, 2016 message: “The Wise Men from the East”

The wise men were people who came from far away seeking truth. In contrast to the shepherds who were poor and humble, the wise men had resources. Again, we see that the message of God’s salvation is for all people. It is likely that their journey to Jesus lasted two years by the time they arrived and worshiped him. What do we do when the journey seems to take a long time¬† – even longer than expected? How do we persevere and keep the promise of the end in mind?
