Capsule for the Day
The journey of the Magi reveals our individual journey to Christ. There is the initial encounter with God and His surprises. Each surprise is always unusual and unexpected. It captures us and leaves us restless. Like the Magi, it sets us on a journey to find the Christ who has already found us.
It's amazing what happens from the initial encounter to the time we find Christ. Now the journey itself is at once challenging and rewarding. But more rewarding is when we finally find Christ. We find Him not where we expect to see Him but where He chooses to be found... Mystery!
In the story, you might have noticed the Magi knelt in worship when they found Christ. This is the moment of conversion; when we surrender our ways to God's Way. And that changes the way we live. Thus, worship isn't just giving God His due but it's also transforms us. To change, worship!
