wise men

When Jesus was born,

some wise men from the east came to Jerusalem   (Matt 2v1a)

No doubt as we get nearer to Christmas the radio/satnav/iPhone will be full of traffic alerts as many take to the roads to travel to see family and friends.   It may well be that you will end up taking a different route or even find yourself in the wrong place!

It seems to me that travelling and visitors are very much a part of the Christmas story.   The wise men arrived in Jerusalem, the wrong place and in the end they took a difference route home.   Mary and Joseph we are told travelled to Bethlehem arriving on what appears to have been a very busy Christmas Eve!   The shepherds received a message not via the internet but via the angels and they travelled off-peek in the middle of the night, maybe to avoid the traffic/crowds!

I wonder where your journey will take you this Christmas.   I hope and pray that you will seek and find, the one born to be king, the baby wrapped in strips of cloth, the light and hope of the world, the word made flesh, the saviour of the world.

Travel safely, seek the King and in your journey may you find God’s peace and presence.

Happy Christmas,   Neil Drayton
