Devotional: Epiphany of the Lord

Heritage Presbyterian Church

Scripture – Matthew 2: 1-12

The official church definition of the word “epiphany” is “the manifestation of the Lord as demonstrated by the Magi. What the date actually commemorates is when Jesus began his ministry to all people everywhere. The Magi came and worshiped “the newborn King of the Jews” but the date also focuses on Jesus being baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist. Both events point to a new beginning, a new way of salvation occurring. Jesus came to save us all!
