Weekly News from WCUMC-1/06/2013Sharing the transforming love of Jesus, across the street and around the world. "O Come Let Us Worship Him, Adore Him, and Trust Him ... Forever" January 6, 2013 - Epiphany“ ... When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to thehouse, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed downand worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presentedhim with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh." Matthew 2:10-11Epiphany means "manifestation" or "revelation". It refers particularly tothe manifestation (or the demonstration) of God in Jesus Christ. Thestory of the Magi shows the amazing unconditional love that God has forall people -- Jews and Gentiles, believers and non-believers.In Matthew 2:1-12, we see three different responses tot he coming of
Christ into the world: 1. King Herods reaction was one of rejection -- jealousy, self- centeredness and hatred. 2. The chief priests and teachers of the law chose to ignore the coming of Christ into their world. 3. The Magis response was one of joy, praise, worship and trust.How may of us reject God or chose to ignore his presence because wedont want Him to impact our lives?How have you responded to Jesus coming into our world?Next week we begin a new sermon series on "Basic Training for Followers of Jesus", based onPauls letter to the Ephesians.
