Jesus the Messiah is born

Isaiah prophesied that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem. The first thing we see is that Joseph and Mary travel to Bethlehem at the time of the census. God was seeing the fulfilment of His word. But as always God works through events and people. The reason for traveling to Bethlehem was for the census. So God takes advantage of human decisions and events to interweave his plans for us into our choices.

Matthew 2: 1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

Even as his mother was in labour, the word got out that the Messiah was about to be born. The magi knew it, Herod knew it. All of history pointed to this moment. This was the very moment that heaven and earth intersected. Jesus who was and is God, came and lived on earth as a man among men.This was the game changer. Ever since the fall of Adam, this was the only solution to solve the eternal and ongoing problem of man’s sin, and inability to live according to the law.

Jesus solicited worship before he was even a day old. And worship came from the source of the wisest amongst men.

11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

The wise men gave gifts and bowed down to Jesus. We should love him and worship him and bring him the gift of our affection and devotion.
