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
