Follow The Star | Day 1 - Star
We all have questions: big ones and small ones. Some questions, though, might change the course of our lives when we search for the answers.
Read Matthew 2.1-8
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.'
Curiosity is a powerful thing. The urge to find out more can lead us in all sorts of directions and it certainly leads the wise men to leave their homes and journey towards an unknown place, following only an unusual star. The wise men have noticed that something is out of the ordinary. something that pulls them, something they can‘t ignore.
Today, on Christmas Day, we celebrate the birth of Jesus. He is the promised king, the child the wise men eventually find and worship. But they’re not there yet. For now, they're still on the journey. They still have questions. They're still searching but they know that what they find will be worth it.
Where are you on your journey with God? What questions do you have about Jesus? Write down your questions and your thoughts and see what answers you find through the next few days.
God of surprises, we bring our questions to you. Show us more about Jesus as we travel through the coming days. Amen.
