THE WORD FOR TODAY Thursday 27.12.2018

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king,
behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews?
for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men,
enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said,
Go and search diligently for the young child;
and when ye have found him, bring me word again,
that I may come and worship him also.

Math. 2:1-2,7-8

Seek the LORD, and ye shall live;
lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it,
and there be none to quench it in Bethel.
Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth.

Amos 5:6-7
