READ Matthew 2:1-12

The Three Wise Men had been anticipating the arrival of the Christ (v.4), the ruler (v.6), who would shepherd God’s people (v.6), who would be king of the Jews (v.2).

  • How were they looking for the Christ even before His arrival?

  • Once Jesus arrived, how did they search for Him?

  • Who else did they find on their search and what was his response to the arrival of the true King?

  • What was the Wise Men’s response to again seeing the star pointing to Christ? (v.10)

  • What did the Wise Men plan to do when they found this King of the Jews (v.2) and what did this look like when they actually found Him?

  • These men went through a lot of trouble to find and worship Jesus. 

  • What has it cost you to get close to Jesus?

  • What obstacles have you faced in worshiping Jesus in your day to day life?

  • When you get close to Jesus, is your attitude like the Wise Men’s or closer to Herod’s? How?

READ Luke 14:25-33 What have you left behind to follow Christ, what do you need to leave behind, and what will you gain in following Christ?
