Matthew 2:2 - Advent - God Has Style

Scripture Matthew 2:2

Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, …


God has style.

I don’t know a lot but I know that God has style.

Not too long ago we had our second little girl.
I’m in the delivery room.
There is frenetic pacing, mass chaos and my wife has never looked more beautiful.
It was a beautiful moment and I was so excited.

I am holding this miracle.

I was so proud of myself emailing photos, texting messages.
I’m a good dad.
I had the announcements out and we were not even home from the hospital yet

I am the best dad.
I say to my wife, I’ll be right back I just got to run to get a few groceries and I run to the party store and ask them to give me 50 balloons, pink would be good.

I am driving home and become a moving traffic hazard.
I tie them every where – inside and outside the house.

I was dad of the year.

And as usual God came to remind me that He is bigger than I.

Just when I was starting to think I am the greatest dad in the history of the world I opened up the Gospel of Matthew to chapter 2 verse 2

[2] "Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, …

I bought 50 balloons and God made a star.

God made a star.

It puts you in your place.
We just take those things for granted don’t we?
We read the story over and over and we kind of get lost in it.

Oh yeah the angel Gabriel visited Mary. Uh huh.
If an angel visits me I would soil my draws. Are you kidding me?
Come on, think about it for a second.

I mean, think about some of these situations.
God made a star.
Do you think about it?

He is not just a proud papa. He is the proudest papa ever.
