“Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him”. Matt. 2:2NLT
Do you know what the difference is between temporal and eternal? TIME! Most of the time, we are focused on the here and now, and how everything in our time relates to our personal needs. It’s a “What’s in it for me” attitude!
But just about the time I have life all figured out from my temporal point of view, God interrupts my time by showing me something of an eternal prospective…. a “Star” as it were, that causes us to drop everything we held to be important, and chase after it. If we are in need of anything, it is a fresh vision of the eternal.
Dear ones, as we celebrate this time we call, Christmas, my prayer for all of us is that we will take the time to focus on the eternal…. chase after it… and worship at the feet of the King of kings and Lord of lords, and rejoice that God has interrupted our time with some One eternal.
