"Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.  Look to the Lord and His strength; seek his face always."  

Psalm 105: 3-5

From Pastor's Pen

   Why are these intrepid travelers from the East called “wise”? Is it because they practiced the ancient art of astrology? Are they teachers? Kings?

   Scripture says the fear of the LORD is the beginning  of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever! [Psalm 111:10]. The Magi are called wise because they recognized God’s providence and activity among men. They saw a Star proceed from East to West rather than the opposite way, which is  according to nature. This must be God’s doing.        

   They recognized that this Star was announcing the fulfillment of the prophesy, But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days. [Micah 2 :5]  They listened to the wisdom of God when spoken to them …in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way. [Matthew 2:12]. They followed the will and direction of God.      

   How about us? Can  we be called wise? Do we recognize God’s involvement, intervention in our lives? Do we see  His miracles when they happen to us? Are we knowledgeable of Scripture enough so we see all of history pointing to the One who is the center of it, from Creation to today?  Do we listen for God’s tender, soft voice directing us, calling us, forgiving us?    

   Are you wise?

   
                  Pastor Henry
