For years we have use a stool to reach to the top of our Christmas tree to place a star, without it would not be a proper tree for the season... the star stood there above everything else, telling us, and point to us, the way to the real Christmas meaning and story!
"Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." [Mathew 2:2].
Obviously these wise men were righteous and on seeking to witness the presence of Christ on earth. Their spiritual capacity is evident, for they were able to see the star that others could not; they knew it's meaning, were certain and confident that they brought meaningful presents to honor the young child!
In return they were blessed as they were warned of God in a dream to return to their home by a safe route and once back at home I am certain they shared their witness with others.
Where is our star today? Can we see it? It is guiding us? Is its light bright and shining? Or is it perhaps fading by our way of life, our lifestyle!
Individual conversion through faith in Jesus Christ entails a change of conduct and a change even of our very human nature, it is such an important change that the Jesus himself talked about as a rebirth, or a change of heart. Conversion is a process not an event and it results from the honest and sincere efforts in our part to follow Jesus Christ.
In other words to continue to see the star with a bright light, to continue to feel that guidance is there, to help us understand the true purpose of our lives!
