THE STAR

Companies sell stars and if you buy one you can give it a name and you will receive a certificate with the name and where to locate it in the sky. You can go out at night and follow your star. The numbers of stars are infinitesimal, I believe that you could just point toward the sky and say: “That is my star”.

How many of us have a hidden star? Hollywood has commercialized this word to the point that there are many stars in Hollywood. How many posters are sold of individuals that are idolized by others? They follow their star. There is place in Hollywood, CA that sidewalks are filled with individual names with a star on them. People follow their star and take pictures with them.

 

Following a star isn’t new. The Bible tells us in Matthew 2:1,2 “1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem

2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”   Three educated and intellectual astronomers from the East had left everything to follow a star. The gift of knowing the difference of this star was God given. They studied the stars from different countries, background and were brought together by a star. The beauty of this is that it wasn’t just any star from Hollywood, the Magi said: “has been born king of the Jews”. Jesus Christ was born to be a star! He was destined to be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! The Star of the morning was given unto us with the purpose to worship Him. During this time of Christmas season let us find the time to worship Jesus. If we follow the true star and worship Him we will not only fulfill with the Scripture but we also see in Matthew 2:10 “10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.” When you set your eyes only on Jesus and not in what you don’t have or cant do, you will be overjoyed. Keep your eyes on Jesus and you will start to worship Him. Once you start to worship Him you will take your eyes of the circumstances that surround you and His love, peace and strength will fill you. You will be overjoyed! Imagine the difference of an overjoyed person. During this season be happy, smile, let joy fill you up. Overflow with JOY!
