Sunday Words of Encouragement January 3, 2010

Starting off the New Year our guest pastor reminded us of the Wisemen. This is a very shortened version of a good message I had never heard before!
The Wisemen went to the Obvious place (Jerusalem) but were mistaken. They were Offensive in seeking Jesus as King Herod and the poeple sure didn't want to hear about some other King or the Messiah. They had to go to an Obscure place, Bethlehem, being Obedient by following the star there and leaving by another route.
So we have to be careful of the Obvious messages that may be coming in the world around us. We may as well accept that we will be Offensive to those who don't want to hear about Jesus, and if we water down the message we will be Offensive to other followers of Christ.  We may live in Obscurity but that is okay as long as we live in Obedience trying to follow God's Will.

This song reminds us that God makes All Things New and that seems appropriate for a New Year!

A Verse for Today:
John 1:14
The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.  We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. 

 My Prayer as we start this National Week of Prayer is that we would be a people of prayer.... seeking God's Will each day! And that has to start with me!
