Today's devotion for today is based on Matthew 2:11, "On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him."
Yesterday, the Christian Church worldwide celebrated Epiphany. The Magi—were highly educated men from the East. Did they know they know the child who was born in a manger would one day hang on a cross? Did they know the child at whose feet they lay their gifts would one day take humanity's sins upon his own shoulders? I doubt it, but we can still learn from them.
They traveled hundreds of miles to worship Jesus; sometimes, we struggle to drive the few blocks to church. Like them, we should want to see Jesus, worship Him, and learn more about Him every Sunday.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, forgive me for the times I've treated your words in the Bible with indifference. Keep my heart on fire for Jesus and move me to never tire of hearing and reading your Word. In Jesus' holy name, I pray. Amen.
