“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.” -Matthew 2:2
God knows the future.
Nothing happens by chance.
The Christmas season is a busy time of year. Shopping to do, cookies to bake, celebrations to attend, lets us know that Christmas time is here. A lot of us get so busy in the chaos surrounding us, we get so wrapped up in the gifts and presents, that we forget about the one the Magi came to worship.
There is a Christmas song by the band Downhere called, “How Many Kings”:
“How many kings stepped down from their thrones?
How many, Lord, have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
How many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that’s been torn all a part?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me; only one did that for me.”
God knows us. He loves us. He wants us to seek him. This Christmas season, stop and look at the beauty of the season. Listen for God in the loudness of the world. Be like the Magi, who saw his star in the east, and came to worship him. God sent His son so that we could be free from the sin that we are in. Give Jesus your all.
Dear God, help us to make this Christmas a time of worship and celebration for your son Jesus. Thank you, God, for the gift you have given us through Him. Amen.
