A New Thing - Magi

Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)

18 "Forget the former things;

do not dwell on the past.

19 See, I am doing a new thing!

Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the desert

and streams in the wasteland.

Matthew 2:9-11 (NIV)
9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.

In this part of the Christmas story, one new thing is a star that moved to show the magi where to find Jesus, the King they were looking for. Another new thing is the magi bringing expensive gifts to a peasant child.

The magi brought their gifts but what can we give to Jesus? He wants us to give him our lives. He wants us to surrender our lives to Him as our gift to Him. The magi brought their gifts one time. We must have that one time we give our lives to Him but then we are to give ourselves to Him every day. He has told us how we can do that:

Matthew 25:34-36 (NIV)
34 "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'

Many people think of helping people especially around Christmas time but these people are around us all the time. By helping them out during the rest of the year we are also giving to Jesus. So our gift to Him isn't just once a year but day by day. May we live as David Grayson who is quoted here:

I sometimes think we expect two much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at time, all through

the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays- let them overtake me unexpectedly- waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: "Why, this is Christmas Day!"
