What God Is Looking For

And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
Genesis 18:17-19

Do you understand what the attraction is? What God sees in Abraham that moves Him to share His plan and His thoughts? God says in these verses that He sees that Abraham would raise his children in the ways of God and this will perpetuate a people who will walk after God and His ways.

The fathers of the magi must have been of like mindedness as Abraham. For centuraries they kept the watch based on what they had passed down through generations. The reward they received was to visit Jesus and be a part of the works of God.

Beloved, we must have that same mind set.

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. Hebrews 9:28
