How to Worship Jesus [Matthew 2:10 Daily Devotional]

“When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.”

Matthew 2:10-11

The star referenced in the passage above was the sign that indicated that the Savior had been born. The “they” in the passage are the magi who traveled from the east to greet their new king, even though they didn’t know who he was. Even though they didn’t know or understand who and what Jesus was fully, they still worshiped him and brought him generous gifts to celebrate his birth.

How to Worship Jesus

You and I can learn a lot from the magi. None of us have met Jesus face to face, but even so you can still bring your best to worship him. Just as the magi traveled far from the east to pay homage and worship Jesus, you can travel a couple minutes to church each week to worship with your church family. And just like the magi came with generous gifts for the Savior of the world, you can take what God has given you and give it back to him. Be generous, serve the people around you, and don’t be afraid to be inconvenienced. It’s in those moments that true worship takes place.


Jesus, thank you for how you came into the world. Vulnerable and dependent on your parents, just like us. Help me to come to you in worship, despite my doubt and feelings of inconvenience. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
