Merry Christmas: The Gift of Forever
I always search for answers. I’m definitely a how, when, and why person. However, sometimes, especially when it comes to God, it just is and nothing else.
The Three Wise men from one of the many Christmas Bible Stories is a lesson in guidance and belief. Disobeying the direction of God could have had dire consequences and listening presented them with safety and the most treasured Gift, Jesus Christ. The Gift that keeps on giving Forever.
He’s your guide which lights your path, counselor, protector, teacher, cheerleader, best friend, and healer – I could go on and on because His presence in your life results in endless possibilities. His Love can’t be compared to any other. As we celebrate this time with friends, family, and acquaintances lets reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and the most Blessed Gift of all.
Matthew 2: 1-12
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2and asked, “Where is the one who has been born King of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”
3When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. 5”In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:
6’But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will be the shepherd of my people Israel’.”
7Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you have found him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”
9After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped Him. Then they opened their treasures and presented Him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. 12And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
Merry Christmas and May God Continue to Guide and Bless Your Life,
