Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

Were I One of the Wise Men by Suzanne Harden

The Three Wise Men Follow The Star of Christ


Were I one the Wise Men that came from afar
Seeking for Christ in the Heavenly Star
My finest riches I would bring
To lay before the Lord, my King.
I would sacrifice my life
To give my priceless gifts to Christ.
I would travel many miles
Through endless storms and fiery trials;
Face many dangers, toiling hard
Just to give my gifts to God.
Over mountains I would climb
Falling down time after time,
But getting up and moving on;
The journey would seem ever long;
But always there to lead and guide,
The Star of Christ up in the sky.
O always to rejoice the heart,
The Star of Christ to light the dark.

Were I one of the Wise Men that journeyed far
That never took their eyes from the Star--
When tempted to trade their gifts for sin,
They never took their eyes from Him--
And if their journey took many years
They never gave up through doubts and fears,
They clung to God’s promise revealed in the Star,
To their love for Christ, the King of their heart.
They clung to their hope in Christ their Dream;
Someday to Him their gifts they would bring.
Someday at last they would find the place
Where they would see Jesus face to face.
Adoration of the Magi by Gentile da Fabriano
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the priceless gift of Your Son Jesus Christ, our Redeemer.
Please give us the undivided hearts of passionate love for our Savior that the Magi Kings displayed for Christ when they left all to follow His Star to give Him their precious treasures. These foreign kings were more devoted to the promises prophesied in Your word than were some of Your own people.
The passage of two thousand years has not tarnished their example of faith and love for You. May You give us such hearts to serve You in passionate commitment, come what may on on our own journey to meet You someday face to face. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
