Continuing with our study of Christmas, we find the Wise Men found and worshiped Jesus some time after His birth.
Reference Matthew 2:1-12
There are 3 groups of people to note and compare:
- Herod displayed an open hatred and hostility toward Jesus.
- The chief priests and the scribes were indifferent toward Jesus, all the while retaining their religious traditions and knowledge.
- The wise men sought out Jesus and unexpectantly worshipped Him – even at great cost. (their time, money, and social status)
Wouldn’t we all want to be more like the Wise Men? I believe it it true – that wise men and women still seek the King!
