Did you ever think of the first Christmas like a party? It was baby Jesus’ first birth day.

Key Points:

  • The star was God’s invitation for the wise men.
  • The wise men probably didn’t even believe in God yet.
  • Jesus invites everyone to follow Him.
  • Christmas is about Jesus inviting everyone to be saved.

Memory Verse:

Matthew 2:11 …they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
