Unwrapping Christmas (Week 2): “The Magi and the Messiah”

Cameron Sapaugh, Guest Speaker – Matthew 2:1-12

Redemption Bible Church continues its latest series entitled “Unwrapping Christmas” examining the birth of Jesus Christ. This week we are led by Cameron Sapaugh, who describes King Herod’s concerns about the birth of Christ, the travels of the Magi, and the religious scholars of the time. A key lesson is that, like the magi, we are invited to come and see Christ and worship Him. We should recognize that, at times, during the holidays things can be challenging as it is an emotional time of year. As we review these emotions, it’s important to reflect and remember that Christ wants to carry our burdens, to be our good shepherd. As we reflect on our past and where we want to go we should look at how our heart aligns with God’s heart. As we engage with people during the Christmas season, we should look for those who might be down or without hope as perhaps there’s an opportunity to help them find Christ. Christ continues to love and support us and this is a gift we should look to share with those around us.
