Epiphany people!

Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. - 1 Timothy 3:16

This is the time in the church year that we call Epiphany, which means, manifestation or something revealed. This season begins on Epiphany Day in January and continues through the month of February. Early on in church history this day was celebrated in different ways; with the Nativity, the visit of the wise men and also Jesus’ baptism. During this season we take a closer look at how our Lord began to reveal himself in different miracles and signs beginning with his birth, the shining and guiding star, and then signs and wonders accompanying his proclamation and teaching.

God reveals himself to us all through Jesus, his Son! Jesus is truly the great Epiphany himself! But what will God reveal to you in this coming year? What a blessing that our Lord still reveals himself today among his people in his word. It is ever his will to unfold the Scriptures to you in your life! This is because God is revealed through Jesus his Son still this day as we gather to receive from him!

You have had “an Epiphany” as God’s child through faith in his saving grace. Jesus has been revealed! God became man; love came from above and changed your life through the priceless gift of God revealed in Jesus, his Son. So now, God’s secret is out and his church is called to celebrate it, to live in it and live by it! So as Paul describes in the reading from 1Timothy here, this mystery is now manifested! God is revealed in the flesh for us! We are truly Epiphany people! The mystery of Jesus the Christ is revealed for God’s people; for you and for me!
