Object lesson: ‘Star of Bethlehem - a compass that points to Jesus’

Pointing to Jesus can lead to a surprise - are you ready to be surprised?

In Matthew 2 we read about the Magi who follow the Star of Bethlehem. Like a giant compass in the night sky it points to Jesus. They are journeying towards their destiny: King Jesus - the One they have been searching for. After this meeting they will never be the same. 

In the video below I show an amazing and mind twisting exercise that you can do with children, teenagers and adults. This exercise is all about looking at Jesus and discovering what happens when we really focus on Him.

I am not going to give anything more away. Watch and join me in this exercise. Only through joining me can you experience it for yourself. There is a big chance you are going to be surprised...
