Well, today is the end of Christmas – the 12th day, as it were. It’s also know as Three Kings Day, commemorating the arrival of the star following magi at the side of the baby Jesus. Makes you sort of wonder why it’s not called Four Kings day doesn’t it?
Anyone, for most of us Christmas is a thing of long ago. Most of the lights are down, the bows and ribbon disposed of and the tree lays out on the curb for the city recycling program ( or stored neatly in the closet for next year!). But take a quick moment to remember how following that star affected those dudes, and remember that when we stick with that Christ guy we also become kings – fellow heirs to his throne. That’s royally cool stuff.
16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.Romans 8:16-17New American Standard Bible (NASB)
