Unto You, Part 2: The Star

Unto You, Part 2: The Star
-Roy Lessin

One night, in one place, one special star appeared in the heavens, for one ordained length of time, and with one specific purpose. This star was like no other star that had ever appeared to human eyes. All the other stars in the night sky are lights declaring the glory of God, but the light of this star appeared to point the way to the One True Light. The other stars spoke of the great work of creation, but this star proclaimed the coming of the Creator to earth. The other stars revealed God’s handiwork, but this star revealed His mighty arm of salvation. There was something else that was unique about this star, it moved. It was God’s heavenly guide.
No one ever born has ever had his or her own star appear in the sky as a Divine birth announcement. No one has ever had a star appear as a travel guide giving directions to those who sought the place where the child lived. The wise men from the East not only saw the star and understood its uniqueness, but they also knew its purpose. They called the star “His Star,” the star of the King of the Jews. They also knew that “His Star” meant that God had sent His promised gift from Heaven, for they made their journey not as tourists, but as worshipers.
God always guides seeking hearts to the One True Light. As the world around us grows darker, the Light of Jesus Christ shines even brighter. It is a Light of truth, hope, purity, and beauty. That Light shines through the faces of those who know Him, through the eyes of those who see Him, through the character of those who walk with Him, and through the hearts of those who love Him.
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, there came wise men from the East to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen His star in the East, and have come to worship Him." Matthew 2:1-2 NKJV
