Six Miles from the Savior

Where is the one who has
been born king of the Jews?
       —Matthew 2:2

The wise men made a trip of 1,000 miles, one-way, to see and worship Jesus.

Teachers of the law in Jerusalem knew that Christ would be born in Bethlehem, six miles from Jerusalem; so they pointed the visitors from the east to that little village. But not one of them slipped on his sandals to go with them—less than a two-hour walk.

Six miles from salvation. Six miles from eternal life.

Joy to the world, the Lord is come . . . Only six miles.
Let earth receive her King . . . Only six miles.

O come, all ye faithful . . . Only six miles.
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem . . . Only six miles.

Six miles from the Savior . . . Only six miles.

It’s possible to point someone to Jesus
without going to him yourself.
