Hi Journey Kids parents!
I hope you had an incredible Christmas! But just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean the celebration is over! See, sometime after Jesus was born, he was visited by a band of wise men from the east. They followed a star that led them to Bethlehem. They offered him gold, frankincense, and myrrh – gifts fit for a king! They recognized that this little boy was worthy of their worship.
When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. After the lesson is over, choose a worship song from the playlist to sing with your kids!
Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:
Bible Story: Wise Men Worship the King of Kings
Big Idea: God blesses us when we suffer for doing what is right, so we can stand up for Him.
Memory Verse: “They asked, ‘Where is the child who has been born to be the king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose. Now we have come to worship him.’” Matthew 2:2 (NIrV)
After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:
Jesus is worthy of our worship. He is still the King of Kings. Let’s begin this new year with a sense of awe at who He is and what He has done for us. Let’s be humbled by Him and grateful to Him. And let’s keep worshiping Him. Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean the celebration has to be.
