The Wordless Christmas Tree Story

images (46)Merry Christmas! Every year, people all over the world get ready for Christmas by putting up a Tree and decorating it. They buy presents and wrap them in pretty papers and put them under their Christmas Tree. But, do you know why Christmas is celebrated and what the Tree and the presents mean? Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s take a closer look at His story.

A long time ago, an angel appeared to a virgin named Mary in the land Israel. Luke 1:30-32  “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest…” At the birth of the Son of God, a star shone above where He lay for all to see. A star is put on the top of the Tree to represent this majestic star. Some wise men from the East followed this star to where the Son of God lay.  Matthew 2:9-11 “…and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was…And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him…” God had a special plan for His Son, who left His royal throne in heaven to become man in order to bring salvation to all men.

The colors on the Tree have special meaning which tell His story:

  • White represents Jesus’ purity and sinlessness because only the Son of God was born without a sinful nature.
  • Black represents sin which brings death. Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death…” Every man is a sinner by nature, so without intervention, everyone will die and go to Hell.
  • Orange is the color that represents the torturing fires of Hell.
  • Red represents the blood of the Lord Jesus.  The shedding of blood is the only payment for sin, and only the pure blood of the Son of God could pay the sin debt for all mankind.
  • The brown branches on the Tree represent the tree upon which Jesus was crucified. After His death, His body was placed in a tomb and sealed. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 “…that Christ died for our sins …And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day…” On the third day, Jesus Christ rose victorious over sin and death. By rising from the dead, He conquered death that He might give life.
  • The green branches of the Tree represent life. Because Jesus now lives, so can we. What is the gift that God offers to man? Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The gift which God offers us is life, which we can receive through Jesus Christ.
  • The gifts under the Tree represent the precious GIFT which Jesus extends to all. If we accept the gift of eternal life, we will live with the Lord Jesus in heaven forever.
  • Yellow is the color on the Tree that represents heaven.

What about YOU?  You and I and every person in the world are sinners by nature.  Sin causes death which means that without intervention, you will die and go to Hell.  However, the good news is that the Lord Jesus paid the price for your sin and now offers YOU the gift of life, which is known as salvation!  You can be saved from your sins!  Will you accept the gift?  What a great tragedy it would be for you to choose to spend eternity in Hell separated from the Lord Jesus who paid such a high price for you!

If you are serious about receiving God’s gift, then you can tell God directly by praying a prayer like this one to Him and He will save you:

Dear God, I see that Your Son the Lord Jesus Christ has paid a high price for me.  I’m a sinner on my way to Hell.  I don’t deserve Your gift, but I ask You to save me.  Thank You, God, for saving me.  Amen.
