JESUS IS BORN
Finally, Jesus was born! Mary wrapped him in blankets placed him in a feeding trough called a manger. Suddenly, a star appeared in the sky above them, and shone down on them. People all around looked at the star and were amazed at their beauty. The shepherds who were looking for Jesus, saw the star in the sky.
“That must be where he is!” one said… “Lets go!!!”
The shepherds ran as fast as they could to the birthplace of Jesus. Baby Jesus was laying in the manger, all snuggled up in his blanket. Mary and Joseph were looking at him, amazed that something so small could one day grow to be the Promised One. There was a knock at the door.
“I wonder who that could be?” Mary asked.
Joseph got up and opened the door. The shepherds were there!
“We have come to meet the promised one, the one the angel spoke about.” So they all entered, and kneeled around Jesus, amazed that they were able to see something so wonderful. After some time, they got up, and went through the whole town telling everyone about the things they had seen.
1. Who does God love? (everyone in the whole world!)
2. Why did Jesus come into the world? (Jesus came into the world to save the world from sin and show the way to heaven)
3. How do you go to heaven?
