What kind of commitment would you be willing to make if you had to travel on foot or by camel? We know the shepherds were the first to arrive and worship Christ the Lord, but some time later a group of wise men made a trip of several hundred miles to pay tribute to the King of the Jews.
God’s Gift is intended for all of us.
The first thing we notice is that the wise men were not of Jewish descent so their journey was a kind of foreshadowing of the promise Simeon spoke when he held Jesus, “for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.” Luke 2:30-32
Next we see that the wise men had a single focus to find the one who was born King of the Jews. They would accept no counterfeit.
Finally, when the wise men entered the house where Jesus was they fell down and worshiped Him and then they offered their gifts.
What lengths will you go to seek Christ? Will you be single-minded in your focus? Will you worship Him and offer yourself as a living sacrifice?
It is something to think about today.
