Modern Day Magi from Australia and I have been communicating these past few days in his and my comment sections. I've been contemplating his name and it's meaning.
From what I can tell, he is a very humble Christian who, like the Magi from Matthew, is on a journey and that journey will ultimately lead him to our Lord where he will be able to gaze at his presence.
Why is he doing this? Is it for salvation? Is it so that he can exalt himself in front of all of us who aren't doing that? No. He's doing it because he loves God and that's good enough for him.
What a truly honorable and heroic example of witness this is. For today, we live in a world and society that thinks, "What's in it for me?" There's a humble man living on the other end of the world from me who's so truly searching for God. And when he gets there, he's not going to ask God, "Where's my reward!" Instead, he will kneel in front of him in awe and say, "God, I've brought you a gift."
MDM, we may differ on some doctrinal issues. But thank you for being such a heroic witness to the Truth.
