After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and 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 2:1-2)
Although learned astrologers of the day, the Magi who followed the star from the east to Jerusalem had a vague understanding of the one whom they sought. Knowing the star represented someone of great importance, they expected to find him in the king’s palace born of royalty. Instead, they found him in a common house born of a lowly young woman. (Read about the Magi in Matthew 2:1-12.)
Like the wise men, people still have a vague understanding of who Jesus is and where to find Him. He is no longer the babe in a manager. He’s the resurrected Lord, victorious of sin, death, and hell. He’s our soon coming King to whom every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is LORD of lords and KING of kings.
How about you? What reminds your of Jesus that begins with the letter V?
See you in a twinkling,
