The wise men came to the house where the baby was. They saw the baby with his mother Mary. The wise men bowed down and worshiped the baby. The wise men opened the gifts they brought for the baby. They gave the baby treasures of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. But God warned the wise men in a dream. God warned them not to go back to Herod. So the wise men went home to their own country a different way. (ERV)

The wise men traveled and found the Christ Child. In moments of worship and praise they humbled their hearts and gave Him their treasures. God’s will was revealed in the One who came to save. JESUS deserves our worship and praise. He deserves our everlasting love. 

Sometimes, we’re not sure what to offer the King of Kings. But, Jesus meets us right where we are. In tender moments of truth, He shows us how to examine our lives, journey in the right direction and discover how it feels to welcome a heart of thanks. And, when we have been led to a place of worship, He reminds us; what He wants is our LOVE.

God opens our eyes to recognize the power of Christ. He is near, He is here! He reaches out with the power of His holiness, but sometimes has to reach too far! Why can we not lift our hands to the One who saves, be available to Him and simply hold on? 

Jesus is deserving of our love. Let us consider what we will give the Christ Child. He is worth more than gold on this earth, but what He desires is our hearts. 

Dear God, Thank you for this season of hope and opportunities to welcome Jesus. As we bow down and worship the One who deserves everything we have to give, humble our hearts to understand what He desires the most. Amen
