Bible Text: Matthew 2:1-12 |


God loves the outsider. Matthew records the first worshipers of Jesus being Magi from the East, perhaps Babylon. Matthew concludes his book with the challenge to make disciples of all nations, all ethnicities, (Matthew 28:19).

The Magi teach us about worship. Worship is giving Christ honor and dignity. worship is expressed with exceeding great joy. And, gifts given, in worship, intensify and express our love.

May the church love and welcome all to worship Christ.
