• Wise Men and the New Year

    The story of the wise men is filled with mystery and intrigue. They come to Jerusalem after Jesus’ birth. They sought directions to find the newborn King. Someone jokingly said, “The reason they are wise men is they are the first men in history to stop and ask for directions.”

    The wise men were evidently professors and philosophers from a country that is today Iraq. They were brilliant and highly educated and trained in what we would call today astrology. In that day astrology was connected with a man’s search for God.

  • Lessons from the Shepherds

    A survey was done that asked the question: Which character of the advent did most people identify with? Was it Mary, Joseph, the Wise Men, Herod, the shepherds? The shepherds came out on top. Throughout the history of Israel, shepherding was a noble profession. Some of the great characters of the Bible were shepherds including Abel, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, and David. God also calls Himself a shepherd.

  • Following a King

    Most of us are familiar with the story of “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas,” but what about the man who tried to kill Christmas?   I’m referring to Herod who hated Christmas more than the Grinch and Scrooge combined, even though he had never heard the word Christmas.

  • Getting Ready For Christ

    “Are you ready for Christmas?” This phrase often means, “Do you have all your shopping done?”

    It is so easy to walk past the manger and Jesus with our arms filled with gifts. Have we allowed the Savior to be stolen from our Christmas celebration?

  • What Are You Waiting For?

    Have you ever made a long trip across country with young children in the car?  What question will they ask you, probably several times before you reach your intended destination?  “Are we there yet?  Are we almost there?”  Waiting for something when you are younger is not easy.

    Even when I grew older, married and had children, it was difficult to wait for Christmas morning. There were gifts for the children and I wanted to see their faces when they opened them.
