Matthew 2:1-2 …behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, ‘Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him’.
John Hagee Daily Devotional 6th December 2020
One star blazing in the night sky was so compelling that the wise men of the East loaded their camels with expensive gifts and followed its light to Jerusalem.
King Herod was the highest official in the land, but they were intent on finding another king. “Where is He?” they fervently asked. And their next declaration was most interesting!
“For we have seen His star….” They had not been captivated by a peculiar or particularly bright star. The adjective they used was quite specific; they had seen His star. Of the millions of lights in the sky that night, only one announced, “Jesus is here.”
In this life, we are enticed by many distractions. Our eyes are drawn to look, and our ears are lured to listen. Many paths promise to be the proper one; many roads seem the right one. People look to money or relationships to find wholeness. They believe that their good works or intellect can save them.
Only one Star leads to heaven, and His name is Jesus. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. His is the only Name under heaven by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12). Let us come to worship Him.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May your heart be completely captivated by the King of kings. May you follow His light to lead you home.
