“After 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” (Matthew 2:9)
“Did you hear about ________?” “Has so and so told you about _______?” Do you like to know what’s going on? I think it’s safe to say that none of us really appreciates being left in the dark about something or to not know what’s going on, right?
Well, almost 2,000 years ago there was a secret in the world, in fact, the most important one: the Savior had just been born! And God was revealing that secret and making it known to the world. God revealed it to some Gentile Magi who lived hundreds of miles from Bethlehem. Then God revealed the secret through those Magi to king Herod, the religious officials, and the people who lived in Jerusalem: the Christ was born in Bethlehem!!!
But…when it came to go to Bethlehem to worship Him…it seems only the Magi went!!! They knew the truth, others rejected it. Well, today God’s revealing that same secret to the world. He does so through His Word. And yet, many refuse to hear it, refuse to make it a priority, refuse to come and worship the newborn King.
Many…but not you! By God’s grace you know the secret! You know God’s Word is where He leads you again and again to Jesus, where He gives you the strength for life, love, joy, peace, patience, and the words of eternal life! What grace! God’s revealed His secret to you! And He keeps revealing it through His Word!
Joyful to have God’s Word, just like you,
