The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken

Jan 06, 2019

Preacher: Rev. Elisabeth Williams

Summary:

The extended passage from Matthew tells us not just of the visit of the Wise Men, but of the tragic events that follow. As Pastor Beth reveals, not only does God choose to reveal the presence of the Messiah in Israel by using foreigners as the messengers, but God sends Joseph and Mary and the baby to safety in Egypt, the place of slavery from which God had led Israel many generations earlier. God, it seems, is willing to call us to take unexpected roads in our journey to do God’s bidding. We must be alert to God’s call and be willing to cross our own boundaries if necessary to do God’s work.
