SEEKING THE SAVIOR
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.
In the crowded town of Bethlehem, where the air was filled with excitement and anticipation, there were wise men who had just arrived from the East.
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him. Matthew 2:1-2
These were not just ordinary men but scholars, seekers of truth and wisdom. These wise men observed a special star in the sky, a celestial sign of profound significance.
In their quest for understanding, these wise men journeyed to find the one born King of the Jews.
Guided by the radiant light in the night sky, they traveled from a distant land with one purpose, to worship the newborn King.
At Christmas, we are reminded that there is something extraordinary about the birth of Jesus. The wise men recognized the divine significance of this event, and their actions serve as an example for us today.
In the middle of our busy lives, it is important to pause and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.
The story of the wise men teaches us that seeking the Savior requires intentional effort and a willingness to follow the signs that lead us to Him.
The star that guided the wise men serves as a symbol of the guidance of God in our lives. In the middle of the challenges and uncertainty, God provides a guiding light, a source of hope and direction.
We are called to pay attention to the signs around us, to be attuned to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, and to follow the path that leads us to Jesus.
This Christmas, approach the manger with a heart full of reverence and adoration. Recognize the significance of the birth of Jesus in your life and respond with gratitude and worship.
Prioritize seeking Jesus above all else, allowing the light of His love to illuminate your heart and guide your life.
Heavenly Father, I will prioritize seeking Jesus above all else, allowing the light of His love to illuminate my heart and guide my life. I will set my heart and mind on the true meaning of this season, drawing my joy and peace from knowing Jesus as my Lord and Savior. As Jesus is the reason for the season, Jesus is the reason I will spend eternity with You, Father God. I will share this good news to as many as I can this season. Thank You, Father, for Jesus. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
