Are you a ‘wise’ man?

Wise men will still seek Jesus!

Text: Matthew 2:9-11

The wisest thing you can do at Christmastime, or any time, is to worship Jesus. That is the bottom of all bottom lines. The wisest thing anybody could ever do is simply worship the Lord Jesus Christ. There are a lot of people who want the joys of Christmas without the worship of Jesus. Impossible! You may have a giddy time, but you’re never going to know the joys of Christmas until you learn to worship the Lord Jesus Christ.

The men in today’s passage were so interested in worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ that they did so despite great difficulty. They were going against Herod’s direction, and they faced a long journey. There were no planes and no hotels. They faced rugged terrain. They faced all of that to worship the Lord.

Does worship mean that much to you, or do you have sort of a take-it-or-leave-it attitude? The Bible says, “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). God have mercy upon our half-hearted worship. If He’s worth anything, He’s worth everything. The word worship means “worth-ship.” What is Jesus worth to you?

How does the worship of the wise men challenge you?

How do you worship God in your everyday life? Where have you been guilty of worshiping comfort or convenience over Jesus?
