The Epiphany Season Upon Us

 

Epiphany Season, part of the Christmas cycle of the church year, takes us through most of January and February, up to Jesus’ Transfiguration. Based on the story of the Wise Men from the East who received God’s Message of the new born King through the sign of a star, the season emphasizes God’s Good News that His love and gift of eternal life are for all people who are strangers to God.

 

We too can come from afar to bow down and worship the King. We, like the Wise Men, can offer our gifts and our lives to King Jesus.

 

Epiphany is about more than people following the star of God’s Word that leads us to Christ. Epiphany is about the God who comes to us, who reveals or makes Himself known to us. As a young person I was raised in a devout Christian home, for which I am grateful. I believed in God, but I did not yet know God personally. At the right time God revealed Himself to me in a personal way. I came to know and love God because He made the journey from heaven to earth for me.
God has made that journey for each of us. He knows you by name. He loves you and desires to have a personal relationship with you. In His Word He calls to you. In your heart He calls to you. He reveals Himself to you so you can know Him. This is the theme of Epiphany.

 

Blessed Epiphany,

 

Pastor Tim Cartwright
