A Divine Revelation That Changed Everything
For all who have entered into the unique, eternal covenant with the sole living God, Christmas, in its essence, is the remembrance of and reflection upon the ultimate gift. God gave once for all people and for all time His only Son to dwell amongst us, changing the world forever. He completed a covenant initiated two thousand years before, provided the one requisite sacrifice, and lit the path unto salvation for the people of all nations.
In the observance of Epiphany, we reflect not only upon the Advent of Immanuel, “God With Us,” but also on that first going out of the “light of the nations” and His salvation toward the end of the earth. In these devotionals following the course of Matthew 2, the reader is invited to look beyond the night of Jesus’ birth toward the unfolding of His new covenant for all people.
