The Journey Of The Magi

18 Jan

The Journey 0f The Magi…

Who were the Magi? The Magi were a special caste of Persian priests. They were astrologers. They practiced that which God condemned.

No believer has any business with astrology, horoscopes, fortune tellers, psychic hotlines, or the occult.

But the Magi teach us something profound. Even though they were using astrology, they sought after God, and with all their hearts. So God, by His grace, met them where they were at, and led them to His presence in Bethlehem. If you looked at their doctrine, few people were as far away from God as the Magi. But if you looked at their hearts, few were as close.

So we as believers might have the doctrine down pat, but if we stop actively seeking God, His love, His truth, His presence in our lives, then all our knowledge and doctrine will mean nothing.

Be grounded in the Word and keep seeking Him with all your heart. Have the doctrine of a Christian, but the heart of the Magi. Keep seeking Him, to go farther, closer, and deeper in His love and presence every day of your life, and you’ll find Him waiting for you in Bethlehem.

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:1-2

Spend today especially seeking the Lord, following after Him, wanting more of Him, being open to and going wherever He leads you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
