Follow the Star

Dear Congregations

Our theme for this Christmas season is: Following the Star....

As we journey through life, it's quite easy to lose focus. To forget where we are going.... Therefore we need something we can focus on, something to keep us on track...

That very first Christmas the magi just knew that they had to follow that star - and look where it brought them (Matthew 2)! They got to meet the baby Jesus.

At roughly the same time, somewhere else, the angels told the shepherds that they had to get up and get going, that something amazing had happened, and they started their journey straight away (Luke 2) And look where that brought them!They got to meet the baby Jesus too.

They listened to the angels, they followed the star - and that choice changed their lives forever!

God talks to all of us. He tells us where to go. In different ways, he leads us to extraordinary places.

All we need to do is listen.....

This Christmas season, let's not get side tracked by anything. Let's listen where God wants to send us, let's see what he has in store for us.

Let's follow that star....

If we put aside what the world expects us to do and make it our priority to find Jesus, just as the magi and the shepherds did, we'll never look back.

We'll never be the same again... 

May you all have a blessed Christmas and a fantastic 2017.
