If we take a look around, we can see that something isn't quite right with the world. Political unrest, poverty, unemployment, and the list goes on. But here's the amazing mystery of Christmas: God saw the trouble, confusion and strife and He did something. He turned everything Upside Down.
In the final week of this series, looking back at Christmas and ahead at the new year, Jason Miller makes us stop and think. The Magi were the wrong people to find Jesus. They weren't a part of the People of God (the Israelites), and they weren't using the proper tools (like the Hebrew Scriptures). They were pagans from a far off place, and they were drawn to Jesus by consulting the stars. Yet they found Jesus, while a bunch of Israelites were going about their daily lives within a stone's throw of the Savior and they missed him. What if, in 2013, God intends for you to discover Him in unexpected places? What if He intends to speak to you through people you never expected? How can we open ourselves up to encounter Christ in 2013?
