500 miles may not be far for us. We can take an hour’s plane ride, or a 5 hour car drive. But back in the 1st Century A.D., taking this kind of trip was once in a life time. The Magi who went to look for the future Savior of the world, did just that. They took the best of the best gifts that money could buy, exposing themselves to highway robbers and murderers. Yet, they made thier way towards the west, looking for their King, wanting to bring Him their presents, as a tribute of faithfulness. These astronomers had been the special generation who would come to see the fulfillment of Daniel’s predciction or prophecies regarding the Messiah of the Israelitesm, who would become the savior of the world. Not much is said about these faithful wise men, but the stories they could tell us would last a lifetime.
If these men were willing to go out and look for this baby King, and if need be, perish doing it, what is keeping you from finding this baby King Jesus?
Don’t wait, may this Christmas, you start your journey looking to the only One that can change 2020 and the future. Make this year the year that you get to know Jesus in a personal way. Ask Him for forgiveness. Ask Him to be the King and Savior of your life. Commit all your sins, troubles and fears to Jesus, who will bring you Peace that only God can give.
DON’T LET THIS SPECIAL TIME OF YEAR KEEP YOU FROM GOD’S PEACE & HIS GIFT OF ETERNAL SALVATION:
