Following Your Star

I, Jesus sent my angel to give you this message for the churches.  I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne.  I am the bright morning star.  (Revelation 22:16 NLT)

   Everyone follows some kind of star.  Your star may be the glitter and glamor of Hollywood, or perhaps a career in the business world, sports arena, medical field, radio, television, or some other dream vocation.  It is perfectly normal for all of us to have worthy aspirations.  The question is: What constitutes worthy?  

   The shepherds considered it worthy to leave their flocks and go see the newborn baby in Bethlehem.  The wise men followed a star to lay gifts at the feet of the King of the Jews.  The Apostle Paul thought it worthy to endure chains and death to reach the Roman empire with the gospel.

   What star are you following?  What worthy cause re you striving for?  The most valuable and worthy gift you can give to Jesus is --- YOU!  This is his aspiration and dream -- to love you and have you love him in return.  Why not hitch your life to THE STAR?

Thought for the Day: God's day star is shining just as brightly as in the beginning of time.
