7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”
OK, so the motivation behind his instruction is definitely dodgy, but the instruction ‘go and search carefully for the child’ is a cracking piece of wisdom. Go and search carefully for Jesus today. Search for him in the office, at home, at school or university. Search for him wherever you are with whomever you’re with. I’m sure that the magi were surprised when they found him – I wonder if we will be too?
Spirit, help me find Christ today…
