You Can Be Wise Too (Matthew 2:1-12)

Join Burgin Baptist Church and worship the Risen Lord with us! Today, Irma Woodrow shared her testimony filled with faith and missions. The Burgin Baptist choir lifted their voices in praise with singing the songs, “Worthy of My Lord,” “More Precious Than Silver,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” This Christmas season, Pastor Carl McCray shared from Matthew 2:1-12 NIV about the magi, the wise men, who followed a star to search for Jesus the Messiah.

The wise men were ready to follow God where ever He directed them. They searched for the Messiah, found HIm, and worshiped Him (Matthew 2:1-12). Like the wise men, you can be wise too.

  • The wise men were willing to step out in faith and follow.
  • The wise men were wiser than men of the world.
  • The wise men worshiped and gave gifts to Jesus.
  • The wise men went home a different way.

What or who are you worshiping today? What garners your time, your resources? That is probably what you are worshiping. You will be unfulfilled without Jesus. When you encounter Jesus and truly worship Him, you can’t go home the same way. You won’t be the same, and your life won’t be the same. Find satisfaction with Jesus today. May we all be wise like the wise men!

“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 2:9-12

Blessings,

Burgin Baptist Church

What if? Why Not? What if I let go of worry? (Matthew 6:19-34 NIV)

Today was another wonderful day of worship at Burgin Baptist Church!  Larry Inman told his testimony about the Good News. The Burgin Baptist choir led us in worship with music as they sang, “He Knows My Name.” Pastor Carl McCray helped us explore the possibilities of letting go of worry.

What if? Why not? What if I let go of worry?  

Worry left unchecked will choke us. Worry causes health problems, keeps you from enjoying the moment, and worst of all, worry is sin – a lack of faith! So how do you learn to let go of worry? Scripture gives us a directive. Don’t worry – God’s got this!

Storm Warning: Wrapping Up What Jesus Said….

Audio of Sermon

This is our third week talking about storms of life and discussing the parable Jesus told in His Sermon the Mount about the wise and foolish builders. In the past two weeks, we learned how to be “Storm Ready” and discovered “Just the Facts” about storms. Today, we are going to wrap up what Jesus said in His Sermon on the Mount.

Are we building our lives on the rock or on the sand? It’s all about obedience. It’s there in our text. Jesus said in Matthew 7:24 (NIV), “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock..” Are we obeying what Jesus said? Are we putting it into practice? If we are, then Jesus said we are wise. When the storms come in our lives, we will be able to stand the bad weather that is certainly to come. However, if we have knowledge and don’t put it into practice, when the storms of life come, we will fall. That is what Jesus was talking about.
