This week’s podcast takes a detour from our usual leadership topics.
A catalyst is a substance that speeds up a chemical reaction. For example, Pepsin is an enzyme that acts as a digestive catalyst, speeding up the digestion of meat. We are also familiar with the use of catalyst to refer to a person that causes change or action. In this episode we will think about such a person. That catalyst is Jesus Christ.
Reading from the Gospel of Matthew, I explore how the birth of Christ impacted the lives of the Magi, King Herod and Joseph, the husband of Mary.
Here are the highlights:
1:13 What is a catalyst?
2:14 The threefold nature of the catalyst
3:35 The response to the catalyst
3:53 The response of the wise men
5:58 The response of King Herod
9:37 The response of Joseph
13:13 How will you respond to this catalyst?
Passage to Read: Matthew 1:18 - Matthew 2:23
