Three Symbolic Gifts

By Adrian Rogers / Now in Heaven

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“…they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.” Matthew 2:11

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Many people think these three gifts were just something incidental. No, they’re fundamental. They carry deep significance. These were not trinkets; these were treasures that didn’t occur by happenstance. This was something the wise men had planned.

Why these specific gifts? They are highly symbolic. I. Gold speaks of His sovereign dominion—He was born a King.  II. Frankincense speaks of His sinless deity—He is God in human flesh. III. And myrrh speaks of His sacrificial death—He was born to die that we might live

He is a king and they brought Him gold. He is God and they brought Him frankincense. He is a Savior and they brought Him myrrh. Sovereign dominion, sinless deity, sacrificial death.

ACTION POINT:
Because He is a King, He has my wealth. Because He is God, He has my worship. And because He died, He has my witness. All that I am, all that I have, all that I do, belongs to this One. That is wisdom. That’s what a wise man will do. Do some soul-searching today. Are you really wise?
