Before I read today’s devotion, I thought there wasn’t much to say about the wise men…everyone already knows about them! I thought the wise men were just some fancy kings that brought baby Jesus some oils…but there is so much more to them than just their gifts! They are the ones who bridges the gap between “fact” and “faith”. In our world today, those two things can get pretty twisted.
The hard thing about deciphering the difference between fact and faith is that the world and the devil are blurring the lines between the two. As Christians, we know that Jesus is Lord of all, but other religions will tell you differently. The world also tells you that your sins are okay. The world will say “It’s okay if you ________” because “everyone does it” or “you’re only human”. Satan also spreads lies saying that “you’re not good enough for the Kingdom of God” or “you have to work to earn God’s love”…THOSE ARE LIES!! Scripture clearly states that if you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, you are going to Heaven. It also says that you do not have to work to earn God’s love because He has always loved you and sent His son to die for you. Isn’t that encouraging?! I know that many of you are struggling with lies from the enemy, but if you constantly dive into the Word, those whispers from Satan will grow fainter and fainter until you can no longer hear them. The line between fact and faith will be clear for you to see.
