Scripture Sunday





Happy Sunday and Happy 3 Kings Day,
Sweet Friends,

Here is today's verses.


The Magi visit the Messiah






 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem

in Judea, during the time of King Herod,

Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 
 and asked, “Where is the one who has 


been born king of the Jews?

We saw his star when it rose and

 have come to worship him.” 

When King Herod heard this he was

disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 


 When he had called together all the 
people’s chief priests and teachers of
 the law,he asked them where the 
Messiah was to be born. 
 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied,
“for this is what the prophet has written: 
 “ ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of 
Judah, are by no means least among
the rulers of Judah; for out of you will
 come ruler who will shepherd 
my people Israel.’ ”


 Then Herod called the Magi secretly 
and found out from them the exact 
time the star had appeared. 

 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, 
“Go and search carefully for the child.
 As soon as you find him, report to me,
so that I too may go and worship him.” 

After they had heard the king, they 
went on their way, and the star they
 had seen when it rose went ahead
of them until it stopped over the place
where the child was. 

 When they saw the star, they were 
overjoyed. On coming to the house,
 they saw the child with his mother Mary,
and they bowed down and worshiped him.
 Then they opened their treasures and
presented him with gifts of gold,
 frankincense and myrrh. 


 And having been warned in a dream
 not to go back to Herod, they returned
 to their country by another route.

Matthew 2:1-12 NIV


Have a remembering and 

Blessed Sunday,

Hugs, Nellie

This reassures us that GOD is in control of everything! Even today, GOD will reroute people for His purposes. I pray His rerouting of Congress to do His will. Love you, Susan
