Follow The Star

He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.” Matthew 2:8

The Word about the Messiah being born has spread across the land, King Herod felt threatened by this because he didn’t understand Jesus came to save the world not condemn it.

The wise man began their journey in search of the new born King, all they had to guide them was The Star sent from God.

After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. Matthew 2:9-10

The wise man studied the scriptures and they knew from prophecy that the child would be born in Bethlehem. God supplied them with the Star to show them the exact location of where Jesus would be.

They also knew that King Herods intentions of finding Jesus were not honest, as he wanted to find Jesus to kill him and not worship him.

 

On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11

We must keep in mind Jesus was probably around 2 years old by the time the Wise Men reached him. This is why they found him at there house and not the manager. When they finally reached Jesus they knew he was The King and bowed down and worshiped him bringing gifts.

Jesus is the best gift you could ever receive, accept this gift from God and find peace, love, and joy in Jesus Name Amen
