Main Point: The Wiseman understood God’s Kingdom Plan and they took action to back up what they believed. As Christians we must take action on what we believe.
Matthew 2: 1-12. The Wise Men knew Jesus was to be worshipped.
-v2, the wise men studied the stars and they understood that the stars were aligned in such a way that the prophesied King of the Jews was to be born.
-v5, Herod gathered the wise men and the chief priest to ask them about this prophecy, and they quoted him the Old Testament scripture that prophesied the birth place to be Bethlehem
-v7, Herod was threatened by this prophecy and he had plans to eliminate the threat to his rule.
-v10, The wise man rejoiced with exceeding great joy,
v11, the wise men worshipped the baby.
-They present gifts worthy of a King because they knew
Jesus was no ordinary baby he is the King of kings and Lord of Lords and one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess he is Lord. Philippians 2:10
Matt: 2:1. The Wise Men took time to take the journey. They took action.
-v1, the wise men traveled a long way to witness the King of Kings and Lord of Lords with their own eyes.
Pastor’s thoughts (Take Action)
-Every one of us has a decision to make in life. Do we believe Jesus is to be worshipped? If the answer is yes, then it’s time for Gods people to Worship Jesus our King of Kings, with exceeding great joy.
-Bring him some gifts, the gift of time. Spend time reading the bible, spend time praying, spend time in church faithfully, and spend time giving.
-Once you have made the decision that Jesus is the only way and he is worthy to be worshipped, then as God pursues you and forgives you of sin, you will want to take time to go on this journey, like the wise men did.
-Don’t just believe, take actions that show you have received his Love.
