My Christmas notes- Only the wise can find him-1
Matt. 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,”
I want to drop one more point from my Christmas notes as we begin to roundup this meditation. This note has to do with the “unusual visitors that visited a baby”.
The Bible called them wise men. There is something I read from bible history about these folks and I can’t agree less.
Matthew 2:16 “Herod was furious when he realized that the wise men had outwitted him. He sent soldiers to kill all the boys in and around Bethlehem who were two years old and under, based on the wise men’s report of the star’s first appearance.”(NLT)
Bible history said the wise men traveled for about two (2) years to get to Bethlehem to give gifts to baby Jesus. Matthew 2:16 shows us that fact. The wise men gave up their freedom, suspended every other activity in their lives and pursued “Baby Jesus” for two years.
Who does that kind of a thing? That would be a WISE MAN!
Beloved, in 2018, how far do you want to go with/for Jesus? How long are you ready to travel to keep and maintain your relationship with Christ?
This is that year when you must renew your prayer altar, your worship and praise life, your bible study and meditation. You must be ready to go to any length for Jesus.
The people that go after God and the things of God are refered to as wise. I must let you know however that; you will be mocked, called names and abused when you choose to follow Jesus like this, but don’t worry, the end justifies the means.
You may look stupid to them but relax, as long as you keep pursuing Christ you will be proved wise in the end.
1 Corinthians 1:18 “The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.”
To be continued…
