God used the star and his Word to guide them to the one who would become the light of the world. Jesus became to us the light that shows us the way to God. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12). And Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6). We must decide if we will accept the light or reject the light. The wise men followed the light all the way to Jesus. All of scripture points us to Jesus. But accepting that journey is in our hands. Will you be wise and follow the light?
Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
