Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of God and the truths that it contains. Thank You for this gospel of Matthew and the wonderful way that he uses the prophetic Scriptures to demonstrate that Christ, Who is declared the eternal Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness - is the Son of Man according to the flesh - through Whom all the families of the earth may be blessed - by faith in His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection. To Him be all praise and glory, and honour and might, majesty, dominion and power, for ever and ever - in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the lovely picture of these wise men, seeking Jesus, and finding Him to be the heavenly Prophet, Priest and King, about whom the Scriptures wrote. Thank You that I have also been guided to worship at His feet, and thank You for the sacrifice of His perfect life – in payment for my sins. It is with humility of heart and grateful thanks, that I offer myself as a living sacrifice, and pray that I will have an opportunity to bear the good news of salvation to others – to the praise of our God and Saviour, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
