Advent

Advent , rejoicing with joy

 

When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.

MATTHEW 2:10

 

Three wise men

 

 

“Worshiping Jesus means joyfully ascribing authority and dignity to Christ with sacrificial gifts.

We ascribe ( credit, attribute, attach ) to him. We don’t add to him.

God is not served by human hands as though he needed anything (Acts 17:25). “
