WHO DO YOU SEEK?                                                   Matthew 2:1-11

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. (Matt. 28:5)

What you focus on will seriously affect your ability to believe your destiny, realize your goals and glorify God. In today’s Bible reading, we are told that some wise me came to seek Jesus. According to Bible scholars, these men must have travelled for at least two years before they got to their destination. They did not arrive immediately Jesus was born, as it is popularly depicted. From Herod’s enquiries on what  time they first saw the guiding star, he could calculate that Jesus could be up to two years old when the wise men arrived.  This was why in an attempt to kill the child, he decreed that children who were two years old and younger be killed Matthew 2:16) When the wise men eventually arrived at the place where Jesus was, they worshipped Him and gave Him gifts. Worship is incomplete without an offering. Proverbs 13:20 says: “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise, but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” If you want to be wise like these men, you will back your worship up with a good offering. The wise men did not travel for two years in vain. After they saw the young Jesus and offered Him gifts,  their deed was immortalized. For over 2,000 years, their story is still being told around the world whenever the gospel of Jesus Christ is preached. After working with God for several years, Moses still asked God to show him His glory (Exodus 33:17-23) Come before his presence with joy and singing; bring Him gifts and worship Him, and you will be glad you did.

PRAYER LINE: Father, the wise men diligently sought for Jesus and found Him, please grant me the grace to seek Him and find Him. (O.H)
