What is the One Thing that listeners should hear in EVERY sermon and Bible class? Seemingly, the possibilities are uncountable.

The Magi get to Jerusalem and ask: "Where is He who is born King of the Jews?" Indeed, that IS a good question even in our day and age! We address this in today's devotion on the actual day of Epiphany! Mt. 2:1-12 is the source of this devotion.
God's people rejoice at the FACT that Jesus, "The Light of the Nations" has come to the entire world!

The Baby Jesus is now 12 years old in today's Gospel reading. After a visit to the temple in Jerusalem, He's nowhere to be found within the traveling group as they return to Nazareth.

Rejoice with us as we consider that God in Christ Jesus entered our world to rescue us from sin, death, & hell. The sermon title is "The F.E. Is Here!" based on the appointed Gospel reading of John 1:1-14.
