The Daily Journey

December 27, 2015 – Pastor Matt James – “The Daily Journey”


Text: Matthew 2:1-12

 Worshiping Jesus is a life-long venture, start in the Word.

Being a Christian means we need to make a daily search for the Lord.

  • Someone told the Magi to watch for the sign of Jesus.
  • We need to make a good search for the Lord in the Scriptures so that our journey will be successful.

 Matthew 2:1-12

Our search for Jesus might get a little uncomfortable but we are not alone.

  • They went on a several month long journey through difficult places.
  • They went on a several month long journey together.
  • Hebrews 10:23-25 Let us…

A religious search for Jesus is not good enough it must be a personal journey.

  • The religious people knew where He was but didn’t search for Him.
  • The Magi were overjoyed when THEY found Jesus!
  • The Magi brought gifts to honor Him but they went to worship Him. Mt. 2:2 & 11
  • Our journey to Christ should be obvious to everyone.

On our journey for Christ let the miracles be miracles.

  • They saw the star and followed it to the house where Jesus was. What? That was called a miracle.
  • The older I get the more I see the miracles. Who got me here? Jesus.
  • I’ve heard of other miracles done in other countries by missionaries and in our country by men and women of God.
  • God does miracles when God wants to glorify Himself.

The Journey for Christ builds our faith in Him and reduces our fear of men.

  • The world will tell us which way we should go on our journey to meet God but only God has that right.
  • I know I’m listening to the right voice when the Word I find every morning helps me every day.
  • The Word sends me in a direction that I know will lead me all the way home.

Mt. 10:22 Stay on course…

  • We are on our journey with God, to God and for God.
