Follow His Spirit

After listening to the king, they went on their way. And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary His mother, and they fell down and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. 12 And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way. ~ Matthew 2:9-12

The wise men were diligently seeking a sign for the birth of the Jewish Messiah. When they saw it, they packed up and traveled a long distance to where He was. Bearing gifts, they fell down before Him and worshipped Him, even though He was only a young child. He wasn’t what you would expect. He didn’t come in His Heavenly form but in the form of a helpless child. If the wise men didn’t know who they were looking for, they would have missed the Messiah altogether.

Today, so many people miss out on Christ Jesus because they don’t know who they’re looking for. They’re strayed away by false teachings and prophecies about a man that the world doesn’t know nor could ever understand. The wise men weren’t distracted by the world or even the kings of the world. The wise men held tightly to the prophecies told of the Messiah and followed His star. This is the only way we will find the one true Messiah. We’ve been given an entire book from God filled with His Word describing who He is and how to recognize Him. And He’s sent us something greater than a star in the sky to guide us to Him. He sent His very Spirit to not only guide us but to dwell in us.

The Messiah has come. We have His Spirit dwelling among us. What more are we waiting for?

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Follow His Spirit.
