TEXT: MATTHEW 2:1-2

INTRODUCTION

The birth of Christ is the most powerful event, the most authentic event in the history of mankind. It is the most celebrated event mankind has ever seen, both known and unknown Christians celebrate him.
Jesus is the center piece of history; Jesus is the most influential figure that has ever existed.
Ninety-eight percent of the inventions of the world came out of those who profess him.
The top most influential institutions in the world where founded by those who believed in him.
There is no civilization without Christ.
If Jesus wasn’t born, everything would have been messed up, but thank God Jesus was born.
The day Jesus was born was the day God became incarnate in the flesh, that God became low in other for us to become high
Before him all looked forward for him and after him everyone talks about him, he is the greatest song in the lips of mortal men.
His a day when answers came to questions; it is a moment where eternity and time clap their hands together.
It’s a day that the Lamb of God that was slayed from the foundation of the earth came into time.
THE BIRTH OF CHRIST WAS REVEALED TO THREE SET OF PEOPLE
1 to the wise men (Matthew 2:2
2 It was revealed to the Jewish shepherds (Luke 2:8-11
3 It was revealed to devoted servants, men like sim-eon , and prophetess Anna (Luke 2:22-29
Whoever you are, Jesus can be explained to you in your own language.

WHAT IS THE REVELATION OF THE BIRTH OF CHRIST?
1 It is the revelation of deep worship (Matthew 2:1-2, Hebrew 1:7
The birth of Christ is the birth of the revelation of deep worship.
Until worship becomes your lifestyle, you are not yet a wise worshiper.
In the place of true worship, distance, places and persons are not taken into cognizant

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE WORSHIP HIM?
1 We bring everything about us under his lordship.
Your world surrenders to the one you worship.
The day you start worshiping, your situation begins to obey his voice.
2 whenever we worship, we release his rebuke over our oppression and oppressors (Mark 5:1-5
Inside worship, there is the power of rebuke
Whenever you worship, you give permission to the one you worship to have a say over your life.
3 when we worship, we provoke him to unleash his blessings over our lives (Psalms 67:5-7
4 when we worship, we raise a memorial (Matthew 26:8
A memorial is a speaking voice in the atmosphere of a man.
Memorial assists us to be relevant in the corridor of eternity.
YOUR WORSHIP IS INCOMPLETE UNTIL IT REFLECTS THREE THINGS WHICH THE WISE MEN BROUGHT.
(A)they brought Gold
If the interest of Christ is not sponsored by your resources then you are not a true worshiper.
(B)Until there is myrrh, it makes you a kingdom preservative.
Until you are able to defend the course of the kingdom you are not a true worshiper.
Worship is not complete until your worship reflects in the way you preserve the course of the kingdom.
(C) Frankincense
Your worship is not complete if it doesn’t reflect the lifestyle of the savior,
You must carry a sweet smell were people want to worship God because of you.
