The Characters of Christmas – The Magi


Reference text: Matthew‬ ‭2:1-12‬


““Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭2:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Then he told them, “Go to Bethlehem and search carefully for the child. And when you find him, come back and tell me so that I can go and worship him, too!””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭2:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

How they worshipped:

  1. They sacrificed their time.
  2. They sacrificed their treasure.

If you are going to live a life of worship it will require sacrifice.

Closing questions:

  • Are you willing to worship the Lord even if it means sacrificing your time?
  • Are you willing to worship the Lord if it means sacrificing some of your hard earned treasure?
