Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”
Every day until Christmas, we are looking at the promises related to the birth of Jesus to see what we can learn from them today.
Wise Men Come
After the birth of Jesus, wise and learned men show up on the scene, asking where the King of the Jews was born. They didn’t ask if the Messiah had been born but where the Messiah was born. It’s amazing how the Jewish religious leaders, who knew the scriptures better than anyone else, completely missed Jesus’ birth.
These wise men had traveled hundreds of miles seeking Jesus. They knew if they followed the promised star, they would find the promised Messiah. Although Jesus came to the Jews, some of the first people who worshiped Him were not Jews but Gentiles. What a wonderful example of how Jesus is the Savior for all people.
The Gospel is for Everyone
The good news of the Gospel is for everyone. From the lowly shepherd to the wise men from afar, those who seek after Jesus find Him.
Jesus invites you and me to seek Him with all our hearts. He promises that when we seek Him, we will find Him. (Matthew 6:33,7:7)
The ancient wise men sought out Jesus. The wise men and women of today still seek with all they are. They know when they seek Him, they find Him. When they find Him, they join the shepherds, wise men, and angels in worshiping Him as Savior and Lord.
Look at the promise again.
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.” – Matthew 2:1-2
Make these confessions.
Jesus came as the Savior to all people.
I am seeking Christ with all my heart.
When I seek Him, I find Him.
When I find Christ, I find peace and fulfillment.
In Jesus’ name,
When you seek Christ, you find all the Savior has for you. In Him, you find true peace and fulfillment.
