Sunday, January 3, 2010: (Epiphany)

Jesus said: “My people, today the Wise Men honored Me as the Infant King as they brought Me gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, fit for royal people. Even though I was born into humble beginnings, I have a royal heritage from the line of King David. You know that I am the Second Person of God, but I lowered Myself to be incarnated as a man so I could die for your sins. I had powers to heal and cast out demons, but I did not seek glory for Myself. I humbled Myself to be obedient to My parents and to God the Father. Later, I even allowed Myself to be humbled by an agonizing crucifixion. I came to the earth as a servant and Savior, and not as a ruler. My public ministry was to teach the people and My apostles about the Kingdom of God, and how to save souls from going to hell so they could come to heaven. Rejoice on this feast of the Epiphany as you honor My Kingship with your praise and worship.”
