Before Jesus was born there were wise men who saw a star and traveled to see what marker it pointed toward. They looked up!
Two of Jesus' followers were traveling down the road to Emmaus pondering the recent events of Christ's tragic death and empty tomb. A stranger appeared and they continued to discuss the happenings and what it all meant. As evening drew near, they looked up at the man and "their eyes were opened and they knew Him."
While here on earth, Jesus traveled around the land of Israel and taught many things. In his own words he told us, there would be signs in the sun, moon and stars (Luke 21:25). He went on to say, "When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."
