THE BIRTH OF CHRIST—THE SAGES—AND

THE STAR. LITTLE did the Bethlehemites think what a guest they refused ; else they would gladly have opened their doors to Him, who was able to open the gate of heaven to them. Now, their inhospitality is punishment enough to itself. They have lost the honour and happiness of being host to their God!

Even still, O blessed Saviour, thou standest at our doors, and knockest. Every motion of thy good Spirit tells us thou art there. Now thou comest in thine own name, and there thou standest, while thy head is full of dew, and thy locks wet with the drops of the night. If we suffer carnal desires and worldly thoughts to take up the lodging of our heart, and revel within us, while thou waitest on our admission, surely our judgment shall be so much the greater,
