So ask yourself what gift can we give this Christmas to Jesus?

As we celebrate Christmas, let us not forget the greatest gift that was given to the world and continue to share this gift with those who are ready to receive. Also, let us not forget to give Jesus his well deserving gift on that day.

I find the story of the wise men interesting for it carries a message of faith, destiny and prophesy to be fulfilled. The wise men from the east also known as the Magi began a journey that may have taken over a year and a half or as many as two years to present Jesus with three types of gifts. Now, a three to four hour car ride down to Washington, D.C. makes me a little antsy, but when you are called by God your final destination may be several years away, but well worth the journey. The long journey of the wise men following a star to the city Bethlehem in search of the Messiah, alone can be a lesson in faith. So, I asked myself, “What was the reason for this journey?” Jesus was born and living in the world for over a year, but when you read the text in Mathew Chapter 2 verse 2, they came to first worship! So ask yourself what gift can we give this Christmas to Jesus?

Mathew Chapter 2 verses 1-2
1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem

2Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

11And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

Worship that is in truth and Spirit is a gift we all we can give. This year let us continue to love one another, and worship our Lord and Savior in truth and Spirit for He is worthy to be praised.
