“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 saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
This supernatural phenomena was specifically sent to announce the coming of God’s Son, Jesus to this earth. This star was his star verse 2 tells us. This was Jesus’ star. It moved the wise men to worship him.
This star was bright. It was light. It makes sense that this light was announcing the incarnation of God to this earth since his throne is surrounded by light. There is no darkness in God at all.
This star was proclaiming the arrival of the Creator of light and the One who is the light of the world. These are facts, not fiction. This is not a fairy tale. Jesus WAS born, wise men DID come and a star DID rise proclaiming the arrival of Jesus.
This event changed history forever. No longer is man floundering around with no hope. The Savior of the world arrived conquering death and offering eternal life to everyone who believes! Nothing would ever be the same. Praise God!
Prayer: Thank you Lord God for sending your Son, Jesus, and becoming one of us so that You could be our Redeemer. You are just and the Justifier. We rebelled. You reconciled. We run from You. You came to us. You redeem us. You run after us and draw us to Yourself. Amazing grace! Praise you Father. Oh the love You have for us! Amen
