1/ Magi: They weren't kings, we don't know how many and they didn't arrive on the night of Jesus' birth.
2/ Whatever the star was (supernatural, natural & subtle, or an angel), God was leading these pagan Magi to himself.
3/ We look for signs from God, but even signs will take us only so far.
4/ We might sense God’s leadings, nudgings and whispers, but we need to bring all that to God’s Word.
5/ The Bible speaks so specifically to our entire lives that it helps us bring our entire lives into our tough decision.
6/ The religious leaders know their Bibles, but what’s astounding is that they don’t join the Magi in their quest.
7/ The religious leaders aren't out to kill the Messiah, but their children actually do.
8/ Spiritual indifference in one generation is the breeding ground for hostility in the next.
9/ There’s nothing more generationally contagious than the spiritual vitality of parents.
10/ Genuine worship requires inconvenience & effort, relinquishment & surrender, joy & rejoicing, giving & sacrifice.
