Come and Worship the Lord! - January Observer Message

“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him,” (Matthew 2:1-2). The Magi came later. It was not the same night as Jesus’ birth in the stable. Magi is another name for wise men. We are not told how many there were, although three is a common number used, maybe because of the three gifts mentioned in the Bible (gold, incense, and myrrh).

January 6th is Epiphany, which means, “a showing, being revealed, made known.” It is the date to celebrate the revealing of the Christ child to the wise men from the east. It has also been called the Gentile Christmas day. It is a season of the church year where Jesus is shown and revealed as the Son of God, the promised Savior. It is especially a time to come and worship that Savior.
