The Advent of Hope Part #3

Passage: Matthew 2:1-12


What a pleasure it is to worship the King. Our passage today is about 2 Kings. One who wanted to control things for His personal glory, and one who wanted to give everything away for His glory, and our great pleasure.


Matthew 2:1-12, helps us see the paradox of the human soul. The Advent of Jesus can only truly end in our worship of Him because when we encounter the risen savior (Even when He is a baby), we can't help but worship that which we were created to worship.

The paradox lies in the fact that we are dead in our sins, and often miss the saviors 'coming,' because our own agendas are more important. Praise God for His grace, as He awakens our souls to see His beauty in His Son, Jesus Christ! May He arrive in your life in 2018!
