After Jesus was born, some wise men came from the east to Jerusalem. These wise men knew that the king of the Jews had been born. They followed a special star that appeared in the sky.
The wise men stopped first in Jerusalem. But King Herod did not know about a new king that had been born. The Jewish leaders said that the king of the Jews was to be born in Bethlehem. So the wise men followed the star to Bethlehem. “The star went before them until it stopped above the place where the child was. They were very happy and excited to see the star” (verses 9b-10).
The wise men were happy to follow the star. Why? So they could worship Jesus. We should always be happy and look forward to times when we can worship Jesus. We can worship Him any time and in any place.
Worship Jesus and thank God for the wonderful gift of His Son!
