The Gospel According to the Wise Men

Matthew 2:1-18

  1. Was it really a “Silent Night”?

  2. Wise Me Weren’t Really There

  3. Were there only 3 Wise Men?

  4. The Gospel is for the Nations

God is going to take all that the Herod’d in our life that intended for evil and overturn it for good. 

Rev. 21:4-And he will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” 

5. Wise Men still Worship God

The Geneology

1.The Gospel is NOT good advice, it’s good news.

We didn’t need another religious teacher we needed a Savior!

2. Jesus is the center of history.

Isaiah (9:1-7) writes that the light was coming into the world, came to a people shrouded in darkness.

3. God is working in all things, for His purposes.

Matthew 1:3 “ Judah was the father of Preze and Zerah by Tamar.”

Romans 8:28 says “all things work together for good.”

Finally

After a lifetime of personal experience, Solomon wrote this book to reveal the single most important lesson anyone, in any age, will ever learn about life. Everything is nothing apart from God.

Key Verses

- Ecclesiastes 12:1: Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, "I find no pleasure in them"

- Ecclesiastes 12:13: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.

Don't wait to you come to the end of your life, and realize how meaningless it was because you tried to live without God!
