Christmas Originals
The Original Ornament

Matthew 2:1-12

The star I want to speak to you about from God’s Word this morning is a star more spectacular and more fascinating than any earthly star.

The Bible is to a large degree silent on the specifics of this star, as to what it was…

I. The Star Speaks of God’s Glory

This star in the sky was the Original Christmas Ornament and it speaks of God’s Glory.

All throughout the Bible we find light associated with God’s Glory.

Christians shine because God’s Glory is reflecting on them.

Is your life like that original Christmas ornament? Are you allowing God’s glory to be reflected through you?

II. The Star Speaks of God’s Guidance

What is the Guiding Light in your life?

Are you looking to the Word of God…the Bible that it might be a map by which God shines His guiding light to you…

They followed God’s guidance and they found…The Greatest Gift.

III. Their finding beyond the star was God’s Gift

And Yet…all of their gifts combined 1000 times over could not begin to compare to the marvelous gift of God, their eyes beheld as the star lead them to that place where they found “their Savior”.

He came as the gift to all of us who will receive Him.

How many kings stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?
Only one did that for me.
