Aha Moments and Oh No Moments

“The Epiphany of the Lord” is a big “Ah Moment” for the magi, who discover that the prophecy of Isaiah had been fulfilled in baby Jesus.  But, King Herod turns this epiphany into a big “Oh No Moment.”  As we begin 2020, are we responding to Christ’s birth more like the magi (do our hearts thrill and rejoice) OR are we responding more like Herod, because we too do not wish to give up our power.  Explore Isaiah 60:1-6 and Matthew 2:1-12 in this sermon and hear God’s surprising challenge to us!
