The visit of the Magi in Matthew 2 shows us how God wants us to look up, see hope and be change(d). The Magi saw the star and listened to God. They followed that star and found Jesus, the hope of the world. When we look up we can see the light that is Jesus, showing us the way. In Jesus we have hope; hope to endure or overcome our circumstances or hidden brokenness and live a life redeemed. This kind of encounter with Jesus changes us. When we are changed, we can then be the change in other's lives by sharing the hope of Jesus with them. So as you enter 2016, remember the real gift of the Magi; the reminder to Look up. See Hope! Be Change(d)...
