Mighty in power,
Great in mercy,
Awesome in love;
as You heard the cry of Your people in captivity in Egypt
and sent Moses to lead them to freedom,
You heard the groaning of Your creation
and sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, to give us freedom.
He was born King and quickly upset the powers that be.
Jesus rose to prominence only to be crucified
and then raised to complete Your plan of redemption.
as the magi traveled far to worship this King,
may we too humble ourselves before our King.
May our pride be dismantled,
and our kingdoms be destroyed,
that we may live forever in the Kingdom You have established.
Send Your Spirit that we may see Jesus revealed again and again
as Savior and Lord of our lives;
that we too may return;
walking by the Way of the magi;
through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Wise men came from the East;
worshipers of the stars,
seeking a Messiah;
They knew the prophesies
They heard the stories
but most of all
they saw a STAR;
a STAR created and sent by God.
Don’t try to scientifically explain it;
just give glory to God!
So without delay they left on their journey,
and for what; for who?
They sought out the king and the leaders of the land,
but knowledge of the birth
they had none.
Prophesies were told
and the location was known.
So Herod sent them on their way
for he, too, wanted to “worship” this child.
(Don’t believe him, he is lying)
Upon finding this child,
they fell to the floor in worship of the
They worship the KING through their gifts of
They worship the KING through their joy.
(Praise be to God!)
But these wise men must leave.
They must return to tell Herod
so he, too, can come and “worship” this
But warning comes;
a warning comes via a dream
“Don’t believe Herod. Don’t go back to him”
So they wise men return by a different Way.
They returned changed.
They returned glorifying and praising God.
Have YOU seen Jesus?
Have you seen the KING?
If so, why are you walking along YOUR way?
Confess your sins and be forgiven;
for Jesus is the WAY and the TRUTH and the LIFE.
Come far and near and see Jesus.
