Leading up to Christmas, a sermon series at my church titled “What Child is This” was presented. Several questions of those who were at the first Christmas were addressed. Like us, they had questions but they all were answered on Christmas.
If you read in Luke 1:26-38, Mary had questions but she trusted God with all her heart. In Matthew 1-2, several others at the first Christmas had questions. Joseph had questions but he didn’t hesitate. Instead he trusted God and followed His path immediately even when it was risky. His faith kept him going until in God’s time the questions were answered. It wasn’t easy for the Wise Men but what kept them going was to find Jesus and it’s the same for us today. What keeps us going is the constant reminder of what He did for us on the cross and this inspires us to want to give Him our best in whatever we do. Like the Innkeeper, will we make room for Jesus with our time and in our thoughts? The wise men did. They looked for and kept on following the star. We too should look for and keep following our Superstar, Jesus Christ. Lift Him up because it’s Good News for all.
