The Israelite Messiah came into the world to seek and save not only the lost in Israel, but the entire world. This is witnessed by the Magi: Persian, pagan astrologers from the East. The Word of God came to even these through the stars which lead them to the true light of the world. To Christ, they bear gold for their king, incense to their God, and myrrh for their dead and risen Lord. What good news this is to us.
Scripture: Matthew 2:1-12
