And Jesus is also the greatest gift they can share with others!
“Mom, I need to add something to my Christmas wish list.” It’s that time of year again! Children’s minds are filled with ads, wants, and wrapped packages. But Christmas also provides wonderful opportunities to pour Gospel truths into young hearts. You can teach your children at Christmas that Jesus is the greatest gift they could ever receive.
1. The Story of Redemption
During Advent, when we anticipate Jesus’ birth, we can celebrate the big-picture story of Scripture. In our family, we begin with Creation and daily walk through God’s plan of redemption until we get to Christ’s birth on Christmas Day.
We talk about the Fall and God’s promise of a Savior in Genesis 3:15. Then we read about his promise to Abraham that he reaffirms throughout the Old Testament. We discuss Moses and the “one greater than Moses” who will come. Plus, we read the prophecies in Isaiah. We look at how all the Bible points to our Redeemer.
2. The Humility of Christ
For the world, the holiday season is about extravagance, opulence, and making every detail picture-perfect. The story of Jesus, however, is one of humility. You can teach your children at Christmas what it means to be greatest in the kingdom (Matthew 20:26–28). Jesus’ parents, his birthplace, his hometown, and his very act of taking on human flesh were all demonstrations of humility.
Most people expected the Messiah to arrive in a castle, not a stable. They expected him to live a life of royalty, not poverty. And they expected Jesus to conquer the Romans, not be crucified by them. Read through Philippians 2:1–11 and show children the humility of Christ.
3. God Works Through Weakness
Another lesson to teach your children at Christmas is how God works through weakness. God often chooses the unlikely and weak to use in his story of redemption. Mary was a simple, poor girl from an insignificant town. Peter was an uneducated fisherman. God displays his glory by working through our weaknesses. This is seen most dramatically in Jesus’ death on the cross in our place. Then his resurrection on Easter secured our victory over sin and death.
4. God Keeps His Promises
Another important truth to emphasize during this season is that God always keeps his promises. Begin with the promise of a Savior after the Fall and go through the Old Testament. Look at God’s promise to redeem his people, culminating in the fulfilled promise in Christ.
5. The Names of Christ
Last year, my children learned a different name for Jesus each day during Advent. We studied names such as Messiah, Lamb of God, Immanuel, Alpha and Omega, and Prince of Peace. Teaching children the names of Jesus and what they mean helps them know more about Jesus, his character, and his work.
We made a paper chain with a different name printed on each link. Another way to learn the names is to create an ornament for each. Then hang them on a Christmas tree each time you study a name.
Take advantage of all these great opportunities to teach your children at Christmas. Spend time in God’s Word. Show kids the promised Messiah and how God fulfilled that promise through the baby born in Bethlehem. Help them see that Jesus is the greatest gift they could ever receive.
