God is able to draw men from all cultures and religious backgrounds to faith in the true and Living God...
There is much folklore surrounding the magi who visited Jesus, but have you thought about the wonderful message they convey?
The Magi came from a pagan land with pagan gods. But they were seeking the true God, and they found Him.
Their role in the birth of Christ proves that God is able to speak to people in the midst of a pagan culture and bring them to Jesus.
God promises: "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13).
When we see wise men in a nativity, let's remember this vision of eternity from Revelation 7:9-10:
"I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb... And they cried out in a loud voice: 'Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.'”
Now that's a message worth celebrating every Christmas.
