They Opened Their Treasures

“And when they were come into the house, they … fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts….” Matt. 2:11

There are great lessons for us here concerning worship. First, is the position of worship—they “fell down.” Second is the Person of worship—they “worshipped Him.” Thirdly, the product of worship—they “opened their treasures.”

Treasures are “the place in which good and precious things are collected.” How we need to collect our treasures concerning Christ prior to coming to worship? Certainly, their worship went beyond “thanksgiving.”  They were taken up with Him! His glory (gold), His beauties (frankincense), and His sacrifice (myrrh). Let’s collect our precious thoughts concerning Him and then come in humility and give our gifts of worship from our opened treasures.
