"...But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;
he is Christ the Lord."
Luke 2:10,11

Christmas Study in the Bible - Star Light / Star Bright!

John 1:1 says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning."

This verse of the Bible is talking about Jesus! Jesus was God, who was in heaven and who loved us so much that He came to show us His Love. He came to save us from the sin that had been brought into the world by Satan, because Adam and Eve did not obey God in the Garden of Eden.

John goes on in John 1:14 to say "The Word (God) became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the father, full of grace and truth."

God came to us as a baby in a manger. The angel of the Lord told the Magi or the wise men and the shepherds that the bright star would lead them to the baby who was to be the Anointed One of God, the Messiah, the King of the Jews. If they followed the star they would find the Christ child. Baby Jesus was born to bring God's people out of darkness into His wonderful Light.

Emmi Squirrel is an angel watching over the Baby Jesus when all of Heavens Angels sang,

"Glory to God in the highest,

and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

Luke 2:14 

Cami Cub and Joshua Jackrabbit are on their best behavior on this very special night. Liam Leapfrog is very quiet. He is playing the part of the baby Jesus. What fun the Animation Trail Critters are having in the Kid Cave Forest. They are putting on a play to tell all the forest creatures about what God has done for the world. They want God to be pleased and give His peace to their friends too!

We hope you have a Merry Christmas.

May God's Love, Peace and Joy be with you!
I invite you to accept Jesus free gift of salvation and a forever life with Him in heaven,
accepting Him as your Savior and Lord, you can say this prayer.

Father God,

I understand I am a sinner. I ask You to fill my empty heart with Jesus. I believe that Jesus is Your Son. He was punished for my sins and died in my place on the cross because of His Great Love for me. He was raised from the dead and resurrected to New Life with God the Father in heaven.

Jesus, please forgive me for my sins. Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to live inside of me. Help me to be like You. I am Your child! You are my Lord and I want You to be the boss of my life!


Now "Go Tell" your parents or church school teacher why you are God's child!
They need to guide your new life with Jesus Christ!
