DLTK's Bible Stories for Children

The Story of Baby Jesus by Sharla Guenther

A long time ago, in the town of Nazareth, lived a young woman named Mary. Mary did her chores, was kind to others, and loved God very much. She was engaged to be married to Joseph, who was a carpenter. One day, while Mary was at home cleaning her room, an angel suddenly appeared. Before Mary could say anything the angel told Mary that she was favored by God, and that God was with her. Mary was surprised. She was trying not to be afraid, but she had never seen an angel before. After all, Mary was just a regular lady like you or I. Why was this angel visiting her? What did the angel want? The angel quickly tried to reassure Mary. "Do not be afraid!" the angel said. "God has found favor with you. You will have a baby boy, and are to give him the name Jesus." Mary was confused; she was not yet married to Joseph, so how could she have a baby? The angel thought that this might concern Mary so he said, "The Holy Spirit will perform a miracle, and because of this your baby will be called the Son of God." To Mary's surprise, the angel had more exciting news: "Even your cousin Elizabeth is going to have a son in her old age. Many thought that she couldn't have children, but she is already pregnant. Nothing is impossible with God." Mary couldn't believe what she was hearing; she didn't know what to say. She realized that she was trembling, and knelt down. When she was finally able to speak she said, "I am the Lord's servant, and I hope everything you have said will come true." Then the angel disappeared, and Mary was left alone. Soon after, Joseph found out that Mary was going to have a baby. Joseph was confused and upset by this, but an angel came to him in a dream and said, "Joseph do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. The child Mary is going to have is God's son, and you are to give him the name Jesus." When Joseph woke up he remembered what the angel had said. He knew that everything was okay, and he wasn't upset anymore. In those days, the government decided that they should count everyone that lived in that area of the world. So Joseph had to take Mary to his town of Bethlehem to register. It took Mary and Joseph a long time to get to Bethlehem. They didn't have cars back then, so it probably took them a lot longer to get there. This was very tiring for Mary because she was soon going to have a baby. When they reached the town, all the hotels were full and there was nowhere that they could stay. Finally, someone felt bad for them and offered them a place to stay. The Bible story about the birth of baby JesusThe Bible doesn't say for sure where they stayed but most people think that they stayed in a small barn where animals were kept. In any case, doesn't it seem strange that Jesus, the King of the Jews wasn't born in a fancy palace or even a hospital? Mary and Joseph were thankful that they at least had a place to lie down. It was warm, and there was plenty of straw to lay on. That night an exciting, wonderful thing happened: Mary and Joseph had a baby! But this wasn't just any baby, he was Baby Jesus! The creator of the whole world, the King of Kings, and the one who would save the world. The little baby boy fell asleep in Mary's arms. She wrapped him in cloths and laid him in a manger on some clean straw. Mary and Joseph soon fell asleep; they were so glad to have this special baby join their family.

Notes from Lesson shared from Wanda Finley

Dear Parents & Children:

We are enhancing your child's growth and knowledge in understanding God's word brought to them on their level. So with that said I want to encourage you to please take time and  print this page out and give to your child to read, study, and answer the Discussion Questions and color the coloring page and other fun activities that maybe included in this lesson as well. But before your child gets started in studying God's Word with this Lesson I want to encourage you to please pray with and for them. We as Parent's or even care givers of small young ones should be in prayer every single day for our children that God has granted to us in our care. Amen!!!

I hope this Lesson has touched & reached you today giving you things to think upon and help get that seed planted to encourage your child today. and note this to... if your not living a life pleasing to God or leading your child in the ways of His Word and ways then my friend it's never too late to start a fresh new start right here right now today. Choose you this day whom you will serve for you can not serve two masters either you will love the one and hate the other. Will you spend eternity in Heaven with Him our creator or will you spend it in Hell with the enemy?
