Happy New Year!
I am writing this on New Year’s Day, and am sure that like me you are wondering what the year holds for us.
Perhaps we have the holiday brochures out already, planning 2020 holidays. Others maybe looking forward to a new car or new job. But, it will be a journey for many of us.
The season of Epiphany will be on us next, when we think of the wise men and their journey. They set out to seek Jesus. We cannot imagine what sort of journey they had, or even how long it took. As we set out on our journey into the new year, could I suggest that our goal be to seek Jesus, and his guidance in everything we do.
The wise men sacrificed. I’m sure they could have been doing something else. But they sacrificed their time and energy to seek Him. Could I suggest again that this year may need some sacrifice on our part to get to a place to be in His presence.
Finally, the wise men worshiped and brought presents. Could I again suggest that we make this year a year where we experience new levels in our own and corporate times of prayer and worship.
Matthew 2 v 11 “On coming to the house, they saw the child with His mother Mary, and they bowed and worshipped Jesus”
