"I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night - but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you." Psalm 139:11-12 NLT
"For God, who said Let the light shine out of darkness made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ Jesus." 2 Corinthians 4:6
"The angel came in the night because that is when lights are best seen and that is when they are most needed. Stepping from his throne in heaven he removed his robe of light and wrapped himself in skin." Max Lucado
"We have seen his star in the east and and have come to worship Him." Matthew 2:2
Can something be learned from the wise men? It is hard to fathom the incarnation of God here on earth. It is too great to comprehend. So we have faith and believe in a miracle. We must learn from the wise men. They were on a quest, a searching for the Savior. When they saw the star they were overjoyed. This calls for a celebration. When joy wells up you can not keep quiet. It bursts forth in song. The angelic choir was ready. They found the baby, the Christ child. This is the response I want to have: humble worship. They brought gifts from afar. I have no gifts of gold, frankincense or myrrh to offer. All he wants is my praise and worship to wonder and marvel in awe. To sing praises in my Spirit. I am looking for the Star. A star to lead me down the path. Where you go I will follow.
"Because of God's tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace." Luke 1:78-79
