Day 25 - The Arrival: The Birth of our Savior.

Matthew 2:1-2 - After Jesus was born in Bethlehem of

Judea in the days of King Herod, wise men from the

east arrived in Jerusalem, (2) saying, “Where is he

who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his

star at its rising and have come to worship him.”

Matthew 2:9 - After hearing the king, they went on

their way. And there it was—the star they had seen at

its rising. It led them until it came and stopped

above the place where the child was.

Not only did the shepherds get an announcement of Christ’s birth, these ‘wise men from

the East’ did, too. We have no idea how many there were, we infer 3 due to their gifts

but the number is not important. Take a step back though from the text and look close at

these men. They were ‘from the East’. That means they were Gentiles and not Jews.

That’s so important. And they too were supernaturally led to where Christ was! God

leads all peoples to Jesus!

Christmas reveals Jesus came for all peoples. Christmas reveals He came for you!
