- Page 4 - Christmas is a wonderful time of
year, isn't it, Mike? It is a time of giving! Will you be giving gifts
to Larry, Daniel and Mark this Christmas? May be you will even leave Atlanta
this Christmas to visit family or friends in another town! Mike, do you know
why we give gifts at Christmas? It is
because God gave us His very best gift. The Bible says that God
loved us so much that He gave his only Son, Jesus. When we put our trust in Jesus as
our Savior, the Bible says God gives us the gift of eternal life. That is the best
Christmas gift of all!

- Page 7 - Mike, the story of Christmas
is really the story of the birth of Jesus. And what a wonderful story it is!
We see angels and shepherds and wise men! We see Mary and Joseph, and most
important of all, Baby Jesus in the manger! This is what we should think about, Mike,
when we hear the word Christmas. It all began when one of God's mighty angels, named
Gabriel, visited a young woman in a town called Nazareth. The young woman's name was
- Page 8 - God sent His angel Gabriel to Mary
with a very important message, Mike. Gabriel told Mary that she was going to
have a baby! Confused by this message, Mary asked how this could happen since she
wasn't married yet. Gabriel said:
The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be
holy; he will be called Son Of God (Luke 1:35).
Mary was amazed, but said, "Here am I,
the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word" (Luke 1:38).
Then the angel left.

- Page 11 - Mike, how would you feel if
you had a visit from Gabriel as Mary did? What if God sent an angel to Atlanta
to give you a message? God wasn't through using His angels, though. Now
Joseph, the man Mary was going to marry, had to be told. Joseph had found out that
Mary was going to have a baby. He planned to break their engagement secretly.
Just when he had decided to do this, an angel appeared to him in a dream. The
angel had an important message for Joseph!
- Page 12 - Mike, the angel of the Lord told
Joseph, son of David, do not be
afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for He will save his people
from their sins. (Matthew 1:20b,21).
Mary's baby was to be named Jesus which
means "the Lord saves." God sent Jesus to save us! Mike, God
sent Jesus to save you!

- Page 15 - Joseph and Mary are good examples
for us, Mike! They obeyed what God told them to do. They also obeyed
the laws of the land. The Emperor Augustus ordered everyone to register their names
in the towns where they were born. That law meant that Joseph had to go to
Bethlehem. Joseph and Mary went on this long trip together.
- Page 16 - Can you see them, Mike?
There is Mary riding on a donkey! She must have been so uncomfortable, since
she was pregnant with Baby Jesus. There is Joseph walking beside her. He must
have felt sorry for Mary. They both knew, though, that God was pleased with their
obedience. Mike, they traveled mile after mile. The roads were dusty.
Their bodies ached. But they traveled on to Bethlehem.
- Page 17 - Picture illustration
- Page 18 - Another picture illustration
- page 19 - The Bible says that all this took
place so that God's Word could be fulfilled. Hundreds of years before, Isaiah, the
Look, the virgin shall conceive and
bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel (Matthew 1:23).
Mike, do you know what the name
Emmanuel means? It means "God with us." Jesus is God with you, Mike!
he is God with Larry, Daniel and Mark, too! Jesus was God's way of
showing Himself to us all!
- Page 20 - When they arrived, there was no
place to stay. They ended up staying in a stable where animals were kept! What
a place for the Son of god to be born in, Mike! Mary gave birth to Baby
Jesus. She wrapped Him in cloths and laid Him in a manger. Mike, a
manger was a feed trough for the animals. Think of how that stable looked and
smelled! There is Baby Jesus - lying in the straw and surrounded by animals.
And there are Mary and Joseph.

- Page 23 - Now we know what Christmas is all
about, don't we Mike! Christmas is about God sending His son, Jesus, to be
the Savior of the world. Christmas is about God's coming to be with us.
Because Jesus came, Mike, we can really know what God is like. All we
have to do is look at Jesus! Jesus, the Son of God, became a human being so
that we could really know God. He came to show us God's love. He came to die
on the cross for our sins.
- Page 24 - God must love us a lot, Mike.
Jesus wasn't born in a nice, clean place. He had animals all around Him
instead of doctors and nurses. Nobody else knew what was happening. The Son of
God was coming into the world, Mike! Only Mary, Joseph - and the animals -
were there when Jesus was born. Soon, though, many others would know. God
would send more angels to announce the birth of Jesus.

- page 26 - Another picture illustration
- page 27 - That very night that Jesus was
born, some shepherds were watching their flock of sheep in the fields. Suddenly, Mike,
an angel of the Lord stood before them. The glory of the Lord shone around them, and
they were really afraid.
But the angel said to them, "Do
not be afraid; for see - I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to
you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord (Luke
2:10,11). The angel also gave them a sign, Mike.
Page 28 - The angel told the shepherds that
they would find Baby Jesus wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. That was the
sign. Then suddenly, Mike, there were angels everywhere praising God.
The shepherds were amazed! After the angels left, the shepherds went quickly
to Bethlehem. There were Mary and Joseph. And there was Baby Jesus- wrapped in
cloths and lying in a manger!

- Page 30 - Another picture illustration
- Page 31 - The shepherds told everyone the
good news. It is good to share our happiness with others, isn't it, Mike?
You could share this same happy story with Larry, Daniel and Mark! Larry,
Daniel and Mark may already know it! Christmas can be the happiest time of the
year as we praise God and tell others about Jesus. That's what the shepherds did, Mike.
Later on, some mysterious visitors from far came to see Jesus. They said they
had seen Jesus' star!
- Page 32 - These visitors, Mike, were
wise men from the east. They followed the star until it stopped above the place
where Jesus was. They were filled with joy! The wise men went inside the house
and saw Baby Jesus with his mother, Mary. They bowed down and worshipped Jesus.
Mike, that's the most important thing for us to do at Christmas, isn't it?
We ought to praise and worship God, as the angels, shepherds and wise men did.

- Page 34 - Another picture illustration
- Page 35 - The wise men did something else, Mike.
They opened their treasure chests. Then they gave costly gifts to Jesus.
They offered Him gold, frankincense, and myrrh. The wise men gave Jesus their
very best. That's another reason, Mike, that we give gifts at Christmas time.
The very best gift you could give Jesus this Christmas, Mike, is your whole
life. After all - He gave His whole life to you!
- Page 36 - And that's the real meaning of
Christmas, Mike Smith.
Thank you, Jesus, Son of God and
Savior, for coming to earth!
Merry Christmas, Mike!
