Wise Journeys and Starry Nights

Love, in its many forms, has the power to transform us.

Close your eyes and picture a humble town under a starlit sky where an extraordinary event unfolds. This isn't just a nice story for the season; it's a beacon of hope and love for us today. In Matthew Chapter 2, we find some incredible lessons about love's power to change our world.

When the wise men inquired, "Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose" (Matthew 2:2, NLT), they set an example for us all. Their journey wasn't just a physical trek but a pursuit of love's true essence. Their journey serves as a lesson and reminder that seeking love, in all its forms, is a journey worth taking, filled with wonder and discovery.

King Herod's response to the wise men and their testimony that declared Jesus' birth is a stark reminder that genuine love disrupts selfish ambitions. Love, in its purest form, challenges us to look beyond our desires, reshaping our perspective towards compassion and empathy.

The most comforting aspect of this narrative is God's unwavering presence. Just as He guided and protected Jesus through Joseph's dreams, He is with us, nurturing and safeguarding the love within our lives. This reassurance brings to life the promise: "God is with you, God was with you, God will be with you."

As we journey through life, let's hold onto the profound truth that love, in its many forms, has the power to transform us. Let our lives be a testament to this love, clearly seen in our actions and words. This Christmas season, let's celebrate the love that not only came to us on that one silent night but continues to guide and shape us daily, inviting us into a story much more significant than our own.

Merry Christmas Friends!

I attended your church six consecutive Sunday evenings, and no one bothered to greet me not even at your dinner. Just sayin’…
