Stars, Smelly Camels & The Story You Are Telling
Your life is no accident. You are in the exact place at the exact time for a specific purpose. Here is proof:
Proof In the Scriptures
“After Jesus was born… a band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East. They asked around: ‘Where can we find and pay homage to the newborn King of the Jews? We observed a star in the Eastern sky that signaled his birth…’”
What was the Star of Bethlehem?
So there is much discussion about what it was that the wise men actually saw up in the sky. Skeptics call it a myth that the early church made up. Some say it was a star or comet, but there is no historical evidence of anything unusually spectacular. Still, these star gazing wise men knew the skies so well, they noticed evidence of Jesus arrival. Others say it could have been two or three planets aligning, what only these astrologers would notice as significant.
Modern Science Explains
What is crazy is that with modern technology, we can actually go back and map what exact position the stars were in during that time. Modern science can pinpoint that perhaps it was a planet that stood still. Astronomers call this retrograde motion. Basically, the exact moment Jesus was born, something spectacular DID happen at the exact moment in time. Even NASA agrees.
What’s This Have to Do With Me?
Whatever it was that was in the skies that time of year, it was that way for a specific reason: the arrival of Jesus. It was no accident. In the same way, your life is no accident. You were created at this exact moment in history. Your life tells a story. It is a story of significance. It points something bigger. Someone bigger.
Stars and Christmas Trees
When you look at that star at the top of your Christmas tree, you’ll now know what it represents. Perhaps you’ll think about the story that your life is telling. Maybe you’ll consider that you story utltimately points to something BIGGER. It points to someone BIGGER.
What story will you tell? Have you ever thought about what the star on the tree is all about? Love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
