And on going into the house, they saw the Child with Mary His mother, and they fell down and worshiped Him. Then opening their treasure bags, they presented to Him gifts--gold and frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11 AMP.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Can you imagine what it must have been like for the Wise Men when they saw Jesus? He was just a child in a stable surrounded by animals, but these Wise Men recognized that He was the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords; the Savior of the world. Immediately, they fell on their faces to worship Him, but notice what they did nextthey presented Him gifts as part of their worship. And they didnt just give any old thing they had; they gave Him their absolute bestcostly gold, frankincense and myrrh.
When we give Jesus our absolute bestour time, talent and resources, it is truly an act of worship. We are saying with our actions, God, You mean more to me than anything. Because You are so awesome, I want to give You everything that I am. It pleases Him when we come to Him with this attitude. When we draw near to Him with an open and humble heart, He draws near to us. Remember to always give Him your best and watch Him open doors of blessing in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father, I come humbly to You today giving You all that I am. I honor You as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I bless You because You are worthy of my absolute best in Jesus name. Amen.
