And on their way they saw the same star they had seen in the east. When they saw it, how happy they were, what joy was their! It went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. Matthew 1:9-10
On the fourth day of his creation, God made the two larger lights, the sun and the moon, and also the stars. Among all these uncountable stars God created, there was one in particular. This particular star was involved in the era of the announcement of the good news, the coming of the savior born for the salvation of the whole human race. He was the king of kings and the Lord of Lords.
Oh, what a special star, a blessed star assigned by God for such a great mission. What a responsibility that must be carried out. Indeed, this particular star, showed itself up in the sky.
Some men who studied the stars saw the star in particular when it came up in the east. They had come to Jerusalem looking for the baby who was to be born, the king of the Jews, with the message revealed by this star. They had come to offer him homage and to worship him who was supposed to be a new king.
When king Heard about this, he was very upset. He called these men to a secret meeting because he wanted to know and to find out from these visitors the exact time for the star’s appear. He sent them off then, with his request. They left and on their way, the same star which they had seen in the east was ahead of them, leading and guiding them until it stopped over the place where the child was. There was no sign of it after guiding the visitors to have found what they had been looking for. Mission accomplished!
Many are the stars I see, but in my eye no star like thee.
