Are You Wise?
“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem.”
Heaven came to Earth. The Son of God became the Son of Man. He came for us.
We needed to be saved from our sins—from our sin nature. Sin separated us from God.
He missed the fellowship we had with him in the Garden before sin entered into the world. Sound overly simplistic? Perhaps, but it is what happened.
“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.”
2 Corinthian 5:18-19
There really aren’t adequate words to describe this kind of love and tenderness. The closest that comes to it is the relationship between a loving parent and child. God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ our Saviour, to draw us back to Him and away from a world that is harsh and wicked. He brings hope and deliverance from the enslavement of sin, fear, brokenness and darkness.
“When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.”
The Wise men sought him, the King of the Jews. It is said that wise men still seek Him. He is not so hard to find. The Bible is rich with facts of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. There are love letters for you to drink in. There is the HIStory of Jesus and His followers, who turned the world upside down with the simple message of the gospel of truth. Prayer opens your heart to Him. It also opens the eyes of your heart to see Jesus Christ, your Savior.
How wise are you? This Christmas consider the tree that Jesus hung on. Take that first step to gaining wisdom and fall on your knees and worship Him.
‘And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother and they fell down and worshiped Him.” Matthew 2:11
