Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men [astrologers] from the east came to Jerusalem, asking, Where is He Who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the east at its rising and have come to worship Him. When Herod the king heard this, he was disturbed and troubled, and the whole of Jerusalem with him. ... Mathew 2: 2-3
Why do you think King Herod and the whole of Jerusalem were so "troubled" when they heard the news of Jesus birth? I believe that before we submit to Christ, most of us turn away from the message of Christ because we are afraid. We are afraid of what others might think. We are afraid to let go of our power to rule our life. We are afraid to "trust" someone (Christ) with our life. We want to hold onto the things that are "important" to us; not realizing that our relationship with Christ is the most IMPORTANT thing we could have. Our families, our friends, our jobs, our material wealth is not worth walking away from CHRIST JESUS because: HE IS THE ONE WHO GIVES LIFE AND GIVES IT MORE ABUNDANTLY! SIMPLY GRATEFUL!
