A New Star

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”

 All creation held its breath.  The Savior was being born.  That spring day was so momentous that a new star appeared in the heavens.  I don’t understand the science of it exactly.  Did the wise men witness the birth of a star or its death?  
When did God put things in motion so that the light hit the earth at just that moment?  Where was it positioned in the night sky?  Was it visible in every hemisphere?

I understand this: creation knows its Creator!  When Christ rode into Jerusalem, he told us that if the people hadn’t praised God in this the day of His visitation the rocks themselves would have done the job (Luke 19:40).  Just a week later when He hung outside the city, the earth shook and the sun refused to shine (Matthew 27:45-53).

If the universe itself shines on the Savior can we do less?  

“Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever" (Daniel 12:3).
