Day 22

The Fourth Sunday of Advent

from the Advent 2019: A Thrill of Hope reading plan


Matthew 2:10-11

BY She Reads Truth

Let us today go down to Bethlehem, and in company with wondering shepherds and adoring Magi, let us see him who was born King of the Jews, for we by faith can claim an interest in him, and can sing, “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.” Jesus is Jehovah incarnate, our Lord and our God, and yet our brother and friend; let us adore and admire.
–Charles H. Spurgeon

When they saw the star, they were overwhelmed with joy. Entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and falling to their knees, they worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
–Matthew 2:10–11

    May I recall all the blessings I have through Christ Jesus. Let me be so overwhelmed with joy that I can do nothing else but fall to my knees in worship. In humble gratitude, may I give Him my heart, soul, mind and strength. May I treasure Him above any other gift I receive this Christmas.
