A Christmas Thought: “A Worship Lesson”
The journey taken by the Wise Men to find Jesus, the King of Kings, was one of complete and total worship. It wasn’t for themselves to be known and gain favor, but rather it was to make known the coming Messiah, Jesus.
As an act of that worship, they brought with them gifts, expensive ones at that. They were gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
But there was more to their worship than these gifts because worship always involves sacrifice.
You see, before these Wise Men could give their gifts, they had to give of themselves. They had to make a long and perilous journey, where they sacrificed their own comfort and safety to find and worship the Messiah.
This is, therefore, a lesson for us in worship. Worship is a whole lot more than singing songs, rather it is a way of life, and it isn’t to make ourselves be known to others, but rather it is to make Jesus Christ known to others through the sacrifice of our lives.
The Apostle Paul said, “I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.” (Romans 12:1)
