Epiphany – Jesus, King of the Jews

Allen explores the geographical and historical context of the ‘Magi” as ‘king-makers’ of the East who come looking for a new-born king. Following the text of Matthew’s Gospel he leads on to ask what the message is for us today. Matthew’s emphasis is Jesus, King of te Jews. Our challenge is enthroning Jesus as ‘king of our lives’ each day. Herod wasn’t concerned to travel 7 ml to Bethlehem, the Magi travelled may be 1700 ml.

If we enthrone Jesus will we give him our treasure? What is our attitude to our possessions? Will we bring our praise and prayer and finally, dying to self, bring our lives?

Verse of the Day

A David Psalm, When He Was Captured by the Philistines in Gath Take my side, God—I’m getting kicked around, stomped on every day. Not a day goes by but somebody beats me up; They make it their duty to beat me up. When I get really afraid I come to you in trust. I’m proud to praise God; fearless now, I trust in God. What can mere mortals do? — Psalm 56:3-4 (MSG)
