“and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2
The Wise Men: we all place the little statues of them carefully around the manger. But they were not there on the night He was born.
No, they came much later. After the Shepherds had gone, after the mystery of the birth had waned, the Wise Men still were persistent to follow their charts, to trace the star, and worship the King that the star foretold.
When the crowds thin out, when my friends go the other way, will I still follow the path of the KING born that night?
It’s easy to worship Him on Christmas morning when the world seems brighter, and the glitter draws me in. It’s easy to sing the Carols when the Season of Advent calls me in.
Where will I give my Worship when the Manger Scene is packed away?
Family Activity: Send love messages to Ministers of the Gospel that have touched your life. Spend some time praying for their homes.
Prayer: Today Lord I surrender my heart to you. Dear Lord, may my worship offerings be acceptable. May they be as sweet smelling savor in Your Presence in Jesus name.
