Matthew 2: 9-10
"9After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed."
Jesus is the light in our dark moments in life...
We as human always have problems... everyone in this world especially in these economic nightmare... a lot of people don't have hope to get up again.
It is very interesting that during the birth of Jesus, three wise men from the east saw a great star was shining in the dark sky... This is the star that catch their attention, it is something that motivate them to see the King of kings that born as a baby. When they saw that star, they overwhelm with joy (Matthew 2 :9).
Important thing to take note is Jesus was born into this world at night and there a great star in the sky. "So, what is the big deal then?"
We all know that "night" is related to "darkness". Darkness means chaos life, broken-down world, world full of sins and hopelessness in life.
"Star" always bring light. When we see stars, we think something related to light, glory, and beauty.
Jesus come to bring light in your dark moments in life... He is the ONLY source, strength and hope we can rely upon. When we feel darkness overwhelm our life, come to Jesus as the three wise men did.
In Matthew 2:10 says "When they saw the star, they were overjoyed."
When we come to Jesus, He will give us rest... He will turn your every dark situation into light and joy. In Isaiah 55:3 says "Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live." (Read this verse again until it overwhelms you)
What a Grace... Imagine this: Jesus the Lord of all this universe come as a baby to bring light and hope into our broken-down world. Come and thank Him for His goodness.
God Bless You
