25 Gifts of Christmas – Day 21

Today’s gift is the symbolism and grandeur of the Wise Men who traveled far to worship Jesus, the Messiah. These men had read God’s Word and believed. They were watching and waiting for Jesus’ coming. They also knew the significance that this birth would bring the world. Their gift of gold symbolized Christ’s divinity. Their gift of frankincense was used as a fragrant offering in worship to God, symbolizing Jesus’ willingness to be an offering – a sacrifice to God for us. Their gift of myrrh was used as an embalming agent – symbolizing bitterness and affliction – which Christ would suffer for us. There is so much more to this story. Open your Bible and ask God to show you the wonder of the Wise Men. Merry Christmas!
