Wise Men Worship King Jesus
A group of wise men who’ve studied the stars notice an unusual star and follow it, looking for the newborn king that had caused the star to rise. When the wise men find Jesus, they worship him because Jesus is the king. Hearing of this, King Herod wants to kill Jesus, but God leads both the wise men and Jesus’ family to keep Jesus safe.
Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him. Matthew 2:2

Through the Week
Here’s an activity you can do throughout the week.
Discuss and Watch "Kings and Kingdoms"
The Bible tells us in Revelation 19:16 that Jesus is the King of all kings and Lord of all lords. Jesus is the king of everyone and everything. Let’s watch a video about kings and kingdoms.
Watch “Kings and Kingdoms.”
Angels came to tell the shepherds about Jesus. They don’t do that for just anyone. In fact, they’ve never come to tell about any other king in history—only Jesus! After the shepherds visited baby Jesus, they had no doubt he truly was the king. They just had to tell everyone.
Most of us will never get a chance to talk to a human king, but we can talk to Jesus, the king of everything, anytime we want. Isn’t that amazing? Think about what you would like to say to the person who is the king of everything. Would you want to ask him something, or kneel down and honor him, or give him something? It’s up to you what you want to say.
Pray – and privately talk to the king—Jesus.
