Here we see Gentiles who earnestly searched for the Christ notwithstanding the peril and hardship of their travel. They persevered in their search after him. We cannot tell how long or how far they journeyed. Considering life during those times, traveling must have been extremely difficult. There were hostile tribes to avoid, the broad rivers of the Tigris and the Euphrates to cross, and trackless deserts to pass through but they made nothing of difficulty or danger. They must have gathered everything that they needed for a long journey regardless of expenses and off they went to follow the star anywhere it led so that they could worship the newborn King.
Today, many essentially continue to search for Christ. They search for the Messiah who can save their lives from mess and the Lord who can give direction to their shapeless future. Jesus is reaching out to you with His matchless love. You no longer need to travel far and wide to see Him and get a chance to worship Him. Just call on His name and He will answer in a manner that you can never expect. He will not fail you. He will give you the meaning for your life that you have been searching for the longest time.
Invite Him into your life. Accept Him as your Lord and Savior and He will forgive you of your sin and will give you a brand new start. Do not hesitate for He has been waiting for you…
I invite you to pray this prayer:
Father, I am a sinner and I cannot save myself. I believe that you love me and you sent Your Son Jesus to die on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins. Forgive me, and I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Come into my life Lord Jesus…
In Jesus’ name
