#85 CHRIST

"Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the day of Herod the king, behold, Magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?  For we saw His star in the east, and have come to worship Him."  And when Herod the king heard it, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.  And gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he began to inquire of them where the CHRIST was to be born.  And they said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written by the prophet:  "And you,  Bethlehem, land of Judah, are by no means least among the leaders of Judah; for out of you shall come forth a Ruler, who will shepherd My people Israel."  Matthew 2:1-6

DEFINITION OF CHRIST

:  Messiah : Jesus : the Anointed

Jesus, You are the CHRIST!  You are the One we were waiting for!  You are the One the Magi from the east were searching for!  You are the One prophesied about in Micah 5:2 who would be born in Bethlehem!  You are the Ruler who would Shepherd Your people.  This was no ordinary birth, You were no ordinary Child.  You are the One who was prophesied about hundreds of years before.  Born in Bethlehem just as the scripture said.  Herod believed You were the CHRIST - and wanted to destroy You (Matthew 2:16).   The Magi believed You were the promised CHRIST - and wanted to worship You.  Oh Jesus, You are who You say You are - the CHRIST, the MESSIAH - the SAVIOR OF THE WORLD!  

Worship and praise Jesus - the CHRIST!!
