Nehemiah 10:1-11:36; Zechariah 7:1-14; Revelation 15:1-8

We have seen His star. Matthew 2:2, NKJV
I, Jesus…am…the Bright and Morning Star…Surely I am coming quickly. Revelation 22:16, 20, NKJV

God guided those wise men to the Christ-child with a special star. How foolish, then, would it have been for them to take their eyes off that star. Today, God has given His people a different star to guide them, the Bright and Morning Star. This name is attached to the promise of Christ’s soon return and we are to fix our eyes upon it. It will guide us in our daily decisions and actions: “every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure” (1 John 3:3). May we be wise men and wise women by keeping our eyes on that Star until we are with Him at last. —Brian Cretney

He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul. —Charles Fry
