Epiphany

6 January 2017

In this story we see 'foreigners' seeking Jesus, believing in Jesus, and worshipping Jesus with what they have. 
'God used what they knew – the stars – and gave them what they didn’t know – the Scriptures – to bring them to Jesus. The story of the Magi shows us that God revealed the truth about Jesus to a bunch of pagan fools while those who were clever enough to work it out for themselves missed out. Their story reminds us that God shows his strength in our weakness, his glory in our humility, his wisdom in our folly – to make it clear that everything comes from him and not from ourselves’
