Lenten Devo #18—For We Saw His Star

Behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him." (Matthew 2:1-2)

It's amazing that the first people to recognize the divinity of Jesus weren't his own people. Even his own parents and siblings misunderstood him. But these three foreigners, these three astrologers (probably) saw him for who he was. They came to worship him.

Such portended the life of Jesus. "He came to his own, but his own did not receive him" (John 1:11). And so it pointed forward to the message that God was gathering the nations to himself. Through the advent of Jesus all would come to worship the one true God.

And the same purposes of God carry on even now. God is calling for the nations to come and worship him. The message of Jesus goes out. May all who hear it bend the knee.
