WEEK THREE | DAY SIX | MATTHEW 2:1-12
The gifts of the Magi tell the life story of the young Jesus they had traveled so far to see: gold for a King, incense for God with us and myrrh for His death. Yet the story did not end there. The risen Savior continues to reconcile God and humans, and desires to call us friends.
Joy has dawned! Jesus is the Light and Life. But so many still need to hear the Good News of God’s salvation—Jesus, the hope for every nation. One of our partners in South Asia shared the story of Manith, the first follower of Jesus in his family. He attended a Bible school so he could learn English and computers. He said he had studied Hinduism’s 33 million gods, but none had ever claimed to be the way, the truth and the life. Upon completing the Bible course, Manith realized he had encountered the one true God. Manith has now dedicated his life to serving the Lord and telling others about the One “promised from creation.” Who can you tell? Sharing this song, or this story, could be a good start!
