Journeying with the Wise Men: Genuine Worship and Seeking Jesus

Rev. Deus Byebiroha

Dive into the profound journey of the Magi to Jesus' birthplace in this message. Explore the concept of genuine worship and the significance of seeking Jesus. Listen now for a transformative experience.

Prepare for a historical journey that will compel you to contemplate the profound nature of Jesus Christ's birth and the reactions it sparked. Imagine being one of the wise men or Magi journeying from the East to worship Jesus, and contrast that with the fear and scheming of King Herod. This episode provides you with a thought-provoking exploration of genuine worship and what it means to seek, discover, and adore Jesus.

Venture deeper into the possible reactions to the birth of Jesus. Ask yourself: are you seeking Him, scheming against Him, or just studying Him from a distance? Let's be wary of the path of King Herod and the priests, who knew about Jesus but failed to truly seek Him. We will reflect on the sincerity of the Magi's quest, their recognition of Jesus as both king and shepherd, and the lesson their genuine worship carries for us all.

Finally, let's ponder the joy of worshipping Jesus and the significance of offering Him our best gifts. We'll discuss the Magi's encounter with the King of Kings and their refusal to bow to Herod. With their hearts full of joy, they found the Messiah and departed in peace. As we close, we'll focus on the importance of seeking Jesus above all else, making Him the center of our Christmas celebrations, and becoming true worshippers of the King of Kings. Tune in for a journey that promises to transform your festive season and beyond.

Christmas: God's Grace Shining in the Darkness of Sinful Humanity!

Christmas does not just introduce us to the baby in the Manger, but it takes us to the beginning of all things and reminds us of what has gone wrong with the world as we see it today. Christmas also brings us to the identity and the ministry of Jesus, and takes us all the way to the consummation of all things and to the return of Jesus Christ, when he restores and establishes everything back to something, even much better than the paradise of Eden.

In the genealogy of Christ in Matthew 2, right in the preamble of the birth of Jesus, you do not only see his coming, but you see his going. You do not only see his being born, but you also see his death on the cross. You do not only see his ministry, but you also see the outcome of what people become as a result of Christ's ministry.

Will Your Celebration this Season be a "Christmas," an "X-mas" or an "X-mess"?


Most people do not celebrate Christmas. Instead, they celebrate an X-mas and end up with an "X-Mess"! Many people are usually increasingly taken up with getting ready for Christmas but they do not express any interest of getting ready for Christ. They hang flashing lights in their houses but live in fearful darkness in their souls! They exchange gifts but never accept God's gift of love that was given to the world on Christmas day.

The sum of the message in this post is that a Christmas without Christ is the vainest of all pagan holidays and no one can truly celebrate Christmas without Christ as his or her Savior. A Christmas that is merely full of hustle and bustle of activity, and mere eating and drinking and rejoicing without Christ is an X-mas: a Christmas without Christ; and an “X-mess”: a total mess!
