Matthew 2:1-2 "After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”  The wise men had seen a star appear in the sky and they made a decision to follow the light to Jerusalem.  John 8:12 "When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  I thought about these wise men and how in life they likely had made plenty of mistakes but we are not told about their faults but we are told that when the light appeared they made a choice to follow it.  I talked with a woman at church and she said that the last decision she had made was a bad one and she didn’t know how to get over it.  I said it's true that if she died today her family would likely remember that last bad decision but if she would make her next decision a God one and a good one then the wrong would fade from the memories of those that know her and she would be known for doing good.  We call them wise men because when the light appeared to them they followed it.  We would be wise also to follow Him, the light of the world, and ask for His help in all the decisions that we have to make today.  My confidence is high in you, for you are greatly blessed and highly favoured.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing with you, 'I Want The Best.'  When we buy something we want the best value for the money we spend.  Sometimes we can pay a great price for something but not receive a great value.  What do you do when there is a no return policy (on your spouse)?
Continue to pray for those in need.  Looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
