The Promise for All Peoples
Passage: Matthew 2:1–2:12
Among the first to worship Jesus were Magi from the East. This scene in the Advent whispers an incredible mercy: God reveals His Son and extends salvation to the nations. Men and women from every people, tribe and tongue will taste the honey-like sweetness of Jesus’ name upon their lips, confessing Him as Lord and worshiping Him as King. Because of God’s great love for the world, He sent His Son.
