#18 “Gifts” – 25 Days of Christmas

intro

“…and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts…” – The Wise Men upon seeing baby Jesus with his mother Mary.

I am fascinated by the “verbs” found in the Scriptures.

Take a closer look at our passage here from Matthew 2: 11

The Wise Men:

Fell…
Worshiped…
Opened…
Offered…

This fourfold action of discipleship is our clarion call.

We “fall” before King Jesus…
We “worship” – expressing our reverence.
We “open” our heart, offer everything we have.
We “offer” our lives as a gift.

What does Jesus want for Christmas?
Our gifts, our very lives.
