In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.” When King Herod heard this, he was frightened, and all Jerusalem with him; and calling together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it has been written by the prophet: ‘And you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who is to shepherd my people Israel.’” (Matthew 2:1-6, NRSV)
We have come to pay homage to the one born King of the Jews. Where is he?
We saw His star at it’s rising and assumed He would be in the palace, where is He?
Where would you look for a king?
Might I suggest on a cross on Calvary?
And follow Him when you find Him, because the life He will lead you to, will be beyond your wildest dreams!
