Read today’s scripture: Matthew 2:1-2
“We saw His star when it rose and have come to worship Him.” Can you imagine faith like that? Seeing something that points to Jesus and automatically following it to worship Him. The Magi, or Wise Men as our Christmas stories tell us, traveled far to see our sweet Savior. This wasn’t a “see ya in the manager, Jesus” scenario. It took them years to get there. But they traveled, they followed, and they worshipped our Savior.
I like to think back on this day and put myself in someone’s shoes. If I were Mary, what would I do? If I was one of the shepherds, would I leave everything to go? If I were a Magi would I travel and wait so long? But friends, we are the Magi. We are waiting, following, and traveling through this foreign world as we await to worship our Savior face to face. So, may we too, like the Magi continue to search and seek the King of kings.
