Messiah Anticipation 

Matthew 2:1-2  Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”

How are you pursuing Christ in anticipation of Christmas this weekend? In scripture, there were three levels of anticipation to the birth of Jesus. Mary and Joseph were stricken with fear upon hearing the news. Herod was overcome with anger and and jealous… let’s be honest… insecurity. Then you have the wise men. The wise men sought Him out.

How are you anticipating Christ this Christmas? Are you living in ignorance? Are you hiding in fear? Are you chasing after Him?
