Follow the Star in 2023


It’s interesting that the most famous star in history really isn’t at all about astronomy, but rather with the people who followed the star and why. The story of a group of influential political and religious men suddenly dropping everything in their daily lives and putting themselves in danger to follow an enigmatic star has intrigued people for millennia. Why such effort, expense, and risk? In their own words, the so-called Magi or Wismen said, “Where is he who has been born King of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” 

How much these individuals understood the significance of the one born “King of the Jews” or their level of conviction, it was sufficient to compel them to take any measure necessary to find out more about this one to whom the star pointed. Isn’t that pretty good advice in 2023 for people professing to believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. 

Whether you have been a Christian for a short or long time, whether your understanding of who he is and what he has done for you is in its beginning stages or deeply embedded in your life, make the commitment of the Wisemen to find out more about him in the coming 365 days. Jesus never promised an easy or comfortable life to those who followed him. He did promise Truth and eternity. 

We stand at the threshold of a new year. Will you follow the Star in 2023?
