Christmas Miracles Dec. 30
I started looking to see if I could find a miracle associated with the Christmas story in the bible for every day in December. I quickly realized this wouldn't be hard to do. I don't know if you have ever realized all of the miraculous events surrounding the birth of Jesus, but they are numerous. Let's look at one each day of December.
Miracle 30: The Wise Men
After this interview the wise men went their way. And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Mathew 2:9-11
Certainly, the wise men are amongst the most mysterious characters of the Christmas story. They show up because they had been following a star. What would we think today if someone showed up saying that a star had led them to us? Most of us like mystery's and trying to solve them. But it seems people today are taken back by the mysteries of God, even using them for a reason not to believe. What they should do is cause us to stand in awe of our great creator who can do things his way. Which often baffles us, but this is no reason to doubt but a reason to seek him and his ways even more. Until we find him, as the wise men found Jesus that day. After all it still takes wise men and women to bow before the king and to worship and adore Him more than any earthly thing.
