After this interview the wise men went their way. And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. When it was time to leave, they returned to their own country by another route, for God had warned them in a dream not to return to Herod.
They didn’t come for a blessing. They didn’t come to be healed, saved, or delivered. They didn’t come to ask for anything. They just came to worship. They came to be a blessing. When they came they came to give honor to Jesus as Emmanuel, God with us incarnated in Jesus.
They worshipped by kneeling in surrender to Jesus as Lord. They worshipped by giving offerings fit for the destiny of Jesus both in the earth and in glory. They brought gold, the symbol of wealth in any kingdom. They brought frankincense which represented prayer and worship. They brought myrrh to represent the fact that Jesus would fulfill the will of God for his life and die on the cross.
And when we come to church we should come to worship Jesus. We were called to worship Jesus. And we should bring offerings that are in line with our calling in Christ.
Think on these things. When you come to church, you should come just to worship Jesus.
