My Gift for the King

Seven hundred years before Jesus was born the prophet Isaiah wrote this.

“Vast caravans of camels will converge on you, the camels of Midian and Ephah. The people of Sheba will bring gold and frankincense and will come worshiping the Lord.”
Isaiah 60:6 – NLT

Then Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem and there Mary gave birth to her firstborn son. They named him Jesus.

“After this interview the wise men went their way. And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”
Matthew 2:9-11 – NLT

Jesus, the promised messiah, the savior of the world. What will I bring to my king this year? I will bring him me; all of my heart, my soul, my mind and my strength.

Jesus I am yours. I want to give you all of me. Even the parts that I formerly partitioned off and kept from you. Fill me up with your Holy Spirit leave no space in me empty. I need your light and truth in every nook and cranny of my being.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
