Matthew 1: 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

            The three magi had encountered the living Christ. In awe and absolute wonder at the fulfillment of prophecy even on a “global scale”, they had sated their curiosity, and they had come away from the experience changed, or so we would like to believe. But I begin to wonder, in the aftermath of many Christmases since I began to walk with Jesus how many people “go to Bethlehem” encounter Jesus and walk away wondering: “What now?”

            If there is a failure on the part of Christian folk (and by extension the Church) it is the fact that there are so few people who can answer that simple question. The teaching is hard, it will meet resistance, it goes against the grain of our sin filled hearts. The message of Christmas is this. “Take up your cross daily and follow” Jesus in all things. (Luke 9:23) Understand the implications. The cross was the means of public execution. Think about it. Our “degradation, our humiliation in the eyes of the world is our daily objective. To carry the cross to the ultimate end. Forsaking all for the sake of our Christ.
