It's a Revelation
In the Word
"… Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him" (Matthew 2:2).
Of the Word
Epiphany, meaning revelation, begins on January 6. It celebrates the revelation of the Son of God to the Gentiles, reminding us that Jesus came to bring forgiveness to everyone, to make the world right with Himself.
Epiphany continues today as God reveals Himself to us through the words of Scripture and strengthens our faith through the power of His Sacraments. The Holy Spirit works in us, increasing our faith and understanding of the plan and purpose of God for our lives. Responding to His love, we share it with others in both words and deeds.
As God's Epiphany work continues in us, we become God's revelation to others of what it means to follow Him. Our Spirit-inspired words and actions have the power to draw others to ask, as the Magi did, "Where is this Jesus? We, too, want to come and worship Him."
Walking with my Lord
Lord Jesus, send Your Holy Spirit into my heart so Your life may be revealed in me. Amen.
