Behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem.
Jesus Christ’s coming to earth is the entry point of salvation’s beginning for mankind. It’s right that we celebrate Christmas! Even though it is true that no one can actually mark the day on which Jesus was born; and even though some object that the season we celebrate was once a pagan feast, it is still right to celebrate! After all, since we do not know the exact day, neither do we know but that Christmas Day is the right day And if pagans corrupted the season in times past, our holy rejoicing can reclaim it with praise to God now! The ancient sages, the wise men from the East, are the ones who made the longest “Christmas visit,” geographically speaking. And the fact that they are memorialized in the pages of God’s eternal Word should tell us something about how God values the efforts of “people who make a big thing out of Christmas.” Let the wise men teach us wisdom. God has visited us from out of eternity. Set a course to “meet Christmas” by making a special visit yourself. You can start by calling on the Lord—for a special Christmas-work in your heart.
