“And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.” – Matthew 2:9b-10
The “Star of Wonder, Star of Night” pointed the Wise Men to the newborn King, so it gave them great joy. However, this sign that there was a new King didn’t get the same response from all. Some were greatly troubled; others just ignored it. How is this “newborn King” Jesus revealing himself to you? How are you responding? Have you found the great joy? Read Isaiah 60:1-6 and Matthew 2:1-12.
