We Should Go and Worship Him

Scripture: Matthew 2: [8] He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”

Observation: Most of my life I was searching for something, something that would give me peace and make sense of my life. I didn’t realize until years later I should have been searching for Jesus, the author of this life and when I found him I was to worship him, not for what he has done for me, but because of who he is.

Application: Now that I have found the savior I should be spending most of my days worshiping him in the things that I do and the way that I act. He should get all the glory and honor in my life and my full attention and obedience. I started this life lost, but now that I found my Lord there is no excuse not to live this life holy and pleasing to him.

Prayer: Dear Lord I have found you and have no excuse not to live a life pleasing to you. Guide me each day to be this man you desire me to be, fulfilling the purpose you created me for.

Joseph a Righteous Man

Scripture: Mathew 1: [19] Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

Observation: I should be a righteous man looking out for the well being of others instead of so focused on my own desires. That is what God has called me to be a righteous man and to serve him by serving others. God has been so righteous with me why is it so hard to be the man he calls me to be?

Application: I need to put God first in all I do. To strive to be that righteous man God calls me to be and to be focused on others more than myself. I don’t have to worry about taking care of me because God has been doing that and I know if I do His will he will continue to look out after me.

Prayer: Dear Lord show me the way to be righteous in your eyes. To be a man that cares for the needs of others above my own as you call me to be. Give me the heart and fill me with the Holy Spirit.
