God Guides The Wise
Matthew 2

What makes a good road trip for you?

“Where is the one who is born King of the Jews?...We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2 (NIV)

Three Responses to God’s Signs of Messiah’s Coming:

• Magi/Wise Men: they believed and acted on that belief
• Chief Priests and Teachers: they believed intellectually, but did nothing.

• King Herod: he felt threatened and tried to kill the Messiah.

ACTION STEPS: How do I respond to Jesus, the King?

1) When God gives you a sign, be faithful. Let that sign lead you to the Bible.
2) When the Bible directs you, be humble and receptive. Let it lead you to worship.
3) When you worship Jesus, be hopeful. He will lead you home!

Jesus is called “Immanuel,” meaning “God with us.” In what way do you want God to be with you this Christmas season? Write down a prayer to God on the Welcome Card and let us know…We will pray with you.
