Arise to Unexpected Decisions (The Malingering Magi)
Throughout the Christmas story, we encounter people who are called to arise to faith. The Magi is one of the greatest examples of this. They exhibited faith by believing the Scriptures and following a star to Jesus. They showed their faith through the gifts they brought. They acted in faith to leave by a different route when told to do so by God in a dream. This Christmas, arise to have faith in the Messiah's call to you.
