King, High Priest, And Saviour

Matthew 2:11
King, High Priest, And Saviour
Matthew 2:11 (NKJV)

And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

There is great joy in choosing a gift carefully, matching the selection to the interests and lifestyle of the one who will receive it. when we find a gift that has significant symbolism or meaning, we are especially pleased.

The wise men brought special gifts to young Jesus, gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Gold, a valuable, pure, and incorruptible metal, is the element of royalty. Frankincense, a resin requiring a slow and tedious extraction process, was burned by the priests to make a fragrant aroma pleasing to God. The leaves of myrrh were often used in embalming.

These gifts were special in their value, but they were also prophetic in their meaning, for in them we see Jesus being honoured as the King, High Priest, and the Saviour who would die. Each of these roles was essential to Jesus’ ministry on earth.

King, High Priest, And Saviour

What good gifts are you giving to Jesus this season? He is your King, Your High Priest, and you’re Saviour. Return to Him the gift of your allegiance as His loyal subject, your sacrifices in holiness, and your humble praise to Him as the one who has rescued you from sin.

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
