"Seek Jesus"

December 21, 2018

 

There were three kings who came from the East bearing gifts for our Lord, gifts fit for a king. They knew what to bring.  The word of God bespeaks the birth of this future king, “…and the
government shall be upon his shoulders…Of the increase of his government and peace there
will be no end” (Isa. 9:6,7).  They showered Jesus with worship, with gifts, with praise.  They
brought their best, nothing less – gold, frankincense, and myrrh (Mt. 2:11).  This is where we get
the idea of giving gifts for Christmas.  Metaphorically speaking, the three kings or “wise men”
laid down their crowns at the feet of Jesus worshipping him with all sincerity (Mt. 2:11), having
traveled thousands of miles with all types of unspoken obstacles and challenges.  Nothing
would get in their way, not even King Herod (Mt. 2:12).  They persevered until they reached
Bethlehem.  The three kings could not wait to open their treasures and present their gifts to
Jesus.  Today, let us open our hearts and give our lives to the Lord.  This is the best gift we
could ever give this Christmas!

Seeking Jesus,
Pastor Josh
