Excitement & Expectancy

Preacher:
Passage: Matthew 2:1-2

The Story of the Magi in Matthew 2

Our new three-week teaching series in Matthew 2 is called They Saw the Star. It looks at the intriguing life of the Magi who visited Joseph, Mary, and Jesus in Bethlehem. This is my favourite part of the Nativity story, so we are going to have some fun together along the way. Mostly, the series is about searching for the truth—as the Magi did. There is a phenomenal opportunity to invite friends and family to come with you to Harvest this month.

Sermon Notes

They Saw the Star
Excitement & Expectancy
Todd Dugard // Matthew 2:1-2
December 3-4, 2016

The birth of Jesus always elicits excitement and expectation in a true believer.

Am I excited by what God has done? (v. 1)

...not scorning it

...but searching it out

Am I expectant for what God is doing and will do? (v. 2)

...knowing who I am

...knowing why I’m here

...knowing where I’m going
