Who has ever heard of such a thing?
And when you think about it, how could a star that is millions of miles away, no matter how miraculous that star might be, how could it possibly mark a specific location on the earth?
If I look up in the big Colorado night sky and see a star directly overhead, and if I walk down the road twenty miles, that star is still going to be directly overhead.
How could it possibly point the way to something as small as a house?
How could it possibly lead someone while traveling on a journey?
Who ever heard of such a star?
And, come to think of it, who ever heard of a star appearing at the time of someone’s birth?
Why would anyone even be looking for that?
And yet, for those who can see it, for those who are actually looking, the one the Magi found after two years of following this guiding light, this star in the heavens, one that was prophesied to appear, these travelers will not find an ego drive, maniacal god.
He was found by those determined and hard travelled Magi, as a humble two year old child, and yet, He was, and is, the King of the Universe.
Oh yes, He is leading a revolution, not in the capitals of power, but within human hearts! For those who choose to see, He is shining a light, saying, “Come and find me.”
For those who can see it, His Star is still shining, still illuminating the way for those wanderers looking for hope, still guiding us forward, still calling us to follow.
FOLLOW…. not drag our feet or merely observe.
Come and follow that once newborn King, and He will teach you a new way.
Come and follow a Risen King. His name is Jesus, who IS Christ The LORD.
In His Shadow,
