Wise Men

Matthew 2:1-2
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
Wise Men
People of all time have tried and still try to find their way through the darkness of this fallen world; they want to make themselves wise to understand and know God. Yet God has not hidden His identity from us. He has repeatedly and frequently made known His intentions through His Word, the Holy Scriptures. Even pagans from the East studied Scripture and understood that the birth of the Savior would happen at a specific time and place. Their confidence in God’s Word was such that they traveled thousands of miles through inhospitable terrain to seek Him out.
If we were only as trusting in God’s Word. So often we find it difficult to get up in the morning and drive the ten minutes to church on a Sunday. Too often we act wise in the ways of the world but are foolish in God’s sight.
But fear not, for God has fully revealed His plans for our salvation. We no longer look to the stars for knowledge about our Savior. He is revealed to us through His eternal and unchanging Word. He has made known the truth of Christ crucified for us. Through His Holy Spirit we have been made wise in the truth of salvation sought so long ago by the wise men.
