Matthew 2:1- Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him..
These wise men that inquired of the "King of the Jews" were also called "Magi's." They were ancient priest who were also astronomers and magicians from Persia, which is modern day Iran.
The faith of these "Magi's" caused them to not only seek the "Savior" of the world, but to worship Him when they find Him. They traveled to Jerusalem because they had seen a "Star" in the east which indicated the birth of a "King".
Indeed, God also uses tangible things to remind us of Him also. In the birth of Jesus, His Son, God used a "Star" as a symbol to both Jews and Gentiles that Jesus is the "Light Of The World"! He is the long awaited King. A Savior has been born to "Save" His people.
We are commanded in Matthew 6:33- But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
The wise men "seek" Jesus so that they could worship Him. What about you? Is it your desire to "Seek" Jesus on today so that you too can worship Him and crown Him as "King" in your life?
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for Jesus Christ, our King who is alive today and is still willing to save those who "seek" Him with their whole hearts.
I love you all.
