Wise Men Still Seek Him

Posted by Christine Pack

I hope that my brothers and sisters in Christ who enjoy celebrating Christmas are enjoying this season as we celebrate our Savior's birth. We are spending a lot of time in our house dwelling on the goodness of God, and on the fact that He actually chose to dwell among us as a human being, as one of us. Because of this, He is intimately acquainted with our struggles and sufferings, and can empathize with us at the deepest level. What a humbling and encouraging thing to know about our Savior! Are you weary and heavy leaden? He knows your struggles, and bids you to come to Him, for He alone will give your soul rest.
"Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted." (Heb 2:17-18)
"For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." (Heb 4:15-16)
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:28-29) 
"And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:7)
