Here we at Day 10 on this journey and we are in Matthew 2: 1-12 ESV. This is one of my favorite parts of the Christmas Story!
Here we see 3 gentile Wise Men, from the east, come seeking Jesus! They heard about the prophecy, saw His star, and believed enough to search for Him! That’s faith! I love that some of the first people to see and worship Jesus were gentiles. I love that gentiles are included in His story, His word, His salvation! I love that through the simple act of faith, believing and accepting Jesus into our hearts, anyone can receive the free gift of salvation that Jesus Christ came to earth to bring! That’s what the Christmas Story is all about!!
My journaling again today was simple and easy! Christmas bulbs added at the top of page to continue the Christmas theme. I used the same retired Stampin’ Up Stamp Set to add the Wise Men and “O come all ye faithful…”. I may go back and add some color to the Wise Men later. I didn’t think of that while journaling but looking at the picture here I think I might do that tomorrow! We will see – I’ll post another picture if I do!
I would love to hear your thoughts on these verses! Let me know what you see here!
Be Blessed, Mary Ann
