All the truly wise accept Jesus as Lord and Savior


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times The Him is the Lord Jesus Christ whose birth we celebrate at this time of the year. The Wise Men refers to the Magi who visited Christ shortly after He was born to present Him with gifts and worship Him. They, of course, were not the first to come and worship the newborn Son of God. That honor was granted the shepherds who were watching their flocks in the fields near Bethlehem the night Christ was born. In the 2,000 years since, the wise, be they great men of learning like the Magi or men of little or no formal education like the shepherds, have continued to seek out Jesus to worship Him as their Lord and Savior. This Christmas, remember that true wisdom, now as then, begins with understanding how much we need Jesus and, in recognizing that need, placing all our trust and faith in Him.
