I just watched again The Star of Bethlehem a DVD by Rick Larson (see http://bethlehemstar.net/) on the account of the magi following the star in Matthew's Gospel. Rick's story is fascinating as to how the Lord guided him to discover the message the heavens were declaring. The awesome God who created the heavens and earth, who spoke creation into being, and who sent his Son to be the savior of the world (1 John 4:14), spoke loud and clear with the sky about Messiah's birth. How blessed we are to live in a time and place where technology and history reveal so many confirming signs of the Revelation of God, His Word!! As the stars proclaim the Glory of God, may our lives, our words, and our deeds proclaim His glory as well.
O God, by the leading of a star you manifested your only Son to the peoples of earth: Lead us, who know you now by faith, to your presence, where we may see you glory face to face; through Jesus the Messiah, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
