Watching a star, walking toward a stall to Worship a Savior!
The wise men in the Christmas story may have come after the birth of Christ and after He was gone from the stall but they found Him and worshiped Him. They watched and followed a faraway star to find the Christ Child. The star led them to the location to worship.
The lord was born in humble surroundings. Poor people getting by but in the midst of the animals and the smells Christ entered their world. Among poverty, rejects and outcasts, there He revealed Himself. He does no less today. Today He is still there among the lost. He does not reside in the mansions and lofty places but among the poor and weak. He is there where we are and where we live. But as He was in that day He must be sought to be found. He never leaves our location. Among our hurried and frazzled schedules He is there. Among the rush and the fuss He is there. Among the hurts and the sickness He is there. Among the bills and the debt He waits for us to seek Him.
Sadly most of us ignore the signs that lead to Him. Most of pass by the stalls where He rests and waits. We have our own stars to follow and our gaze is on mansions on our landscapes. Our culture and citizenry drive us to look for prosperity, possessions and property. We are not looking for Him because we are being driven for us. But if you can stop for just a moment maybe you could see a star the leads to a stall where waits a Savior!
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
