Matthew 2:2 Where is the one who has been born king of the jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.
As my son (the wise guy in the red) played his part in the kids' Christmas special at church, I realized just how amazing it must have been for a bunch of Magi (not really sure how many) to spend such a LONG time on the road in search of the Christ child. Could you just imagine the anticipation, the expectation and... how NERVOUS they must have been?
"We are going to see the KING!" I would have just fainted. Instead, they bowed at the feet of the young Jesus, and brought precious gifts for him (do you think he got to play with them?), and they just worshipped! WOW. The chance to worship before the Lord of all. The really cool thing, is we have the chance to do this every single DAY! We bring our gifts to Him, we bow at his feet, and we worship. This year, our Christmas celebration will include much worshipping, and bringing gifts to Jesus in the form of helping out others. I pray that your celebrations include the real reason behind gift giving, and that you are blessed by the gifts of others, and most importantly, the gift of Jesus himself.
Have a very blessed Christmas!Thanks for joining me today... for more inspiring posts, please visit:
