Lesson 3

The Real Meaning of Christmas

Ken Ken and Amy Amy watched a long line of ants ants crawling across the sidewalk to an old piece of cake lying on the street.

Amy was amazed and said, "Those ants are really busy!"

"Yes," said Ken. "ants are always busy."

the driver got out and began to turn on the water hydrant

Suddenly they heard a truck. Ken and Amy watched as the driver got out and began to turn on the water hydrant at the corner.

They knew that soon water would rush down the street, taking everything with it.

Amy screamed, "Ken, all the ants will be drowned! How can we help them?" She cried out to the ants, "Get out of the way or you will be drowned!"

But the stream of water came rushing down, and the ants drowned

But the stream of water came rushing down, and the ants drowned. Amy began to cry. Ken was sad. He put his hand on Amy's shoulder and said, "They did not understand what you said, Amy."

They ran to Mother Mother and told her how the ants drowned. "I tried to tell them, but they would not listen," cried Amy.

Mother explained why they did not listen. "Amy, you are a person—a human being. ants are different from people. They could not understand what you were saying. The only way they could understand you is for you to become an ant. Would you like to be an ant?"

"No," said Amy. "But I wish I could have told the ants what to do."

Mother thought for a moment and then said, "I want to explain something to you. Christmas is coming soon and people people will be busy buying presents presents. It is sad that many people are so busy thinking about the presents that they forget or do not know the real meaning of Christmas."

"What is the real meaning of Christmas?" asked Amy.

Mother explained, "God, our heavenly Father, looked down from Heaven and saw that people were sinning by doing many wrong things.

"But God loved all the people so much that He wanted to save them from the punishment that would come if they died with dark, sinful hearts sinful heart.

"How could people understand God? There was only ONE way! God had to become a human being, a person, just like us. Then people could understand Him when He spoke to them."

Amy spoke up. "If I could have become an ant, I could have told the ants to get out of the way so that they would not have drowned."

Mother agreed. "And God loved every person so much that He let His Son, the Lord Jesus Jesus, become a person like us so that He could be our Savior. "Jesus is the Son of God, and He lived in Heaven with the Father and with the Holy Spirit long, long before the world was made. But He came into the world as a tiny baby baby.

Christmas is the celebration of God giving us His Son

"Mary Mary was His mother. Before the baby was born, an angel angel came to Mary and told her that soon she would have a son. He would be the Son of God, and His name would be JESUS. The name "Jesus" means Savior. God gave His Son to us to be our Savior. Jesus died on the cross so we could be forgiven of all our sins.

When was born, an angel came to some shepherds

"When Jesus was born, an angel came to some shepherds in the field and said, 'I bring you great joy…for unto you is born this day…a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.'

"As Jesus grew up, He never sinned. He never disobeyed His parents or did anything wrong because He was the Son of God. He came into the world to die for our sins so we could be saved by believing in Him.

"The Bible Bible says in John 3:16, 'For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.' If we believe in Jesus we will have life that lasts forever in Heaven."

Mother asked, "Now do you understand the real meaning of Christmas?"

"Yes," answered Ken. "It means that Jesus is God's Christmas Gift to us."

Amy added, "Jesus is the best Gift we could ever have!"
