A star guides the three wise men, the three kings, to the infant-King.
A star no less! This is a cosmic event. This child is significant, to say the least. The psalm captures it well: “All nations shall fall prostrate before you, O Lord.”
This child is the Saviour of all – all nations. Get that; all. Mind-blowing!
Pope Francis says there’s no middle ground in this – “it’s either light or dark, haughtiness or humility, the truth or the lie. We either open the door to Jesus who comes to save us, or close it in (our belief in) self-sufficiency and the pride of self-salvation.”
I once considered politics, but it was just too much of a compromise. He’s either the Saviour or he’s not, there is no middle ground!
That’s the meaning of the Epiphany – but God will never force the matter. Neither can we.
Instead, be the star that leads to Him!
Have a happy Feast of the Epiphany.
