A Census, An Angel, and a Star
December 24, 2022
New Testament

At the first Christmas 2000 years ago, God used different events and objects to direct people to Jesus—to behold the One who was born to save the world. He used a census to lead Joseph and Mary to Bethlehem where Jesus was to be born. He used an angel to lead shepherds to witness the newborn King. And God used a star to lead Wise Men from the east to worship Jesus. What events and circumstances is God using in your own life to bring you to an encounter with Jesus? A hardship? A difficulty? Or maybe you’ve been living “the good life” but you realize something—or Someone—is missing! God is still leading people to Jesus today.
