Lesson 1: March 31-April 6

‘Fell down and worshipped Him’

 

3. At the end of their long journey following the star, how did the wise men respond when they saw the Child Jesus in Bethlehem? Matthew 2:11.

NOTE: ‘“Where is He that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him.” “And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him; and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.” The wise men have left us an example of what we should do. Jesus should be the object of our adoration, the recipient of our gifts. It is not man, but our Redeemer, that should be honoured. To Him we should offer our praise and gifts and treasures.’ Bible Echo, December 15, 1892.

 

4. When the prophet, John the Revelator, tried to worship before the angel of God, how did the angel rebuke him?  Revelation 19:10.

NOTE: ‘With deep reverence and awe [John] fell at the feet of the angel to worship him. The heavenly messenger instantly raised him up and gently reproved him, saying, “See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” The angel then showed John the heavenly city with all its splendour and dazzling glory, and he, enraptured and overwhelmed, and forgetful of the former reproof of the angel, again fell to worship at his feet. Again the gentle reproof was given, “See thou do it not for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.”’ Early Writings, page 230.
