I’ve decided to do my Christmas posts on Mondays, focusing on the Magi. I hope it blesses you this season!
1After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magia from the east came to Jerusalem 2and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” ~Matthew 2
There is a light
High up in the Heavens
And I’ve seen something similar
Watched them a long time
But this is different
A different kind of light
A new message—
The King is born
Salvation has come!
I travel to meet Him
This Promised One
The One the stars speak of
That guide me to the place of promise
I go there to bow to Him
To give Him the richest gifts
Earth can give
Oh to gaze on His face!
To worship Him as King
As my Savior!
This star in the Heavens
Proclaims the Star of Salvation
This Light that has dawned on us
Tells of His crown of Light
I will follow in the path
This Light does lead
It will lead me to His side
Where I may honor Him
“2The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.” ~Isaiah 9
“1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” ~John 1
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on their God.
The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.
