Song: It's Christmas

Wise Man 1: Hi, I am a wise man. A real wise guy. This big guy here. He's wise too.

Wise Man 2: Hi, We study the stars and we have spotted a very unusual star. We are here to help reenact and narrate.... The very first Christmas. Christmas is all about C-H-R-I-S-T and that spells Christ.

Wise Man 1: We are in the now, telling the story of the then. We have been traveling from the east for a very long time. We have great gifts for the New born King. We want to honor Him with gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Wise Man 2: Now imagine camels, a dark starry night and dirty feet with blisters singing on our long journey. Remember... We will be traveling at least two more years.

Song: Follow the Star

Shepherd: Hi, I am a shepherd. I am out in the field watching the sheep. I am in the now.... telling the story of the then. All us shepherds were out watching sheep when something nearly scared us to death.
Angels appeared from nowhere......Imagine the whole sky lighting up and the sheep running in fear and one of us yelling "what in the world is that?" .....We were shaking like this. SHAKE Then the angels said.......

Angel: Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

All ANGELS SHOUT; Glory to God in the highest, Glory to God in the highest ........

AngelsHi: We are the angels in the now...well you know

Shepherd: We know and you're telling the story of the then.

Angel: That's right how'd you know?

Shepherd: Everybody knows that.

Angel : Oh

Shepherd: Now we are going to go check things out in Bethlehem. Imagine climbing up a big hill and asking directions while we are moving our sheep along. And here we are worshipping the new born King. We found him in a stable.

Song: Away in a Manger

All: Lu 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Joseph: Hi, I'm Joseph

Mary: And I'm Mary and this is baby Jesus -

Angel: And the scripture was fulfilled - In the Then!

Mt 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from their sins.
And we celebrate the birth of our Savior on Christmas day. In the Now!

Song: On Christmas Day

Song: Ring Out The News

Wise Man 2: Remember us, we are the wise men.....We are still traveling in the then, so Imagine sleeping on a sandy bed, and eating interesting food. Imagine long discussions about the stars and very tired legs.

Wise Man1: But we are telling you the story in the now. As we look to the star remember that Jesus is the light of the world. He came into this world and learned and understood our feelings. He suffered and understands human pain. But Jesus never ever sinned. He was perfect yet gave His life so that you could know peace and forgiveness.

Song: Where There's Light There's Hope

Wise Man2: We have gifts of gold, and valuable spices and perfume. Gifts of royalty for the New born King. And as we look to the light we do not fully understand that this King will one day die for the world.

Wise Man 1: Jesus was and is a gift to the world, for He is alone is the way of salvation to all who believe. He gave and He's still giving.

Wise Man2
: And all the wise men and women of this world should give to others and to God, because to love is to give. After all Jesus didn't have to die for us.

Song: To Love is To Give

Wise Man2: Hey, can I ask you a question?

Wise Man: Yea! go ahead.

Wise man 2: Do your feet hurt?

Wise Man 1: No, because I'm living in the Now.

Wise Man 2: Yea, it can be painful living in the past.

Wise Man1: I prefer the Now, cause all my sins are under the blood. I don't like desert travel and I prefer a mattress.

Wise Man 2: You are very wise. Speaking of living in the now. See our Christmas star. Well that star represents the light and Jesus is the light of the world. The Bible speaks of Jesus as a Star in
(2Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: ) Now, when a person believes and puts their trust in Jesus. Jesus the light of the world is born in their heart. It's like a personal Christmas...Jesus not only came to die for us, but He came to live in us and He came that we could live.

Wise Man 1: Every Christmas we are reminded of why Jesus came and how much He loves us, but we really can't understand Christmas until Christmas happens in our hearts.

Song: Christmas Isn't Christmas

Shepherd s Yell: Guess What?

Everyone Yells: What?

Shepherds Yell
: It's Christmas!

Song:
It's Christmas

No Wonder ~ Joan Clifton Costner



NO WONDER

No wonder angels came first to the shepherds,
Announcing to earth, "The Good Shepherd is here!"
No wonder that great host of heavenly beings,
Appeared as a choir, sang loud and clear.
Peace on the earth! Beloved children, sing it!
Joy to the World! 'Twill never be the same!
Good will to men, from the heart of creation,
All given in the sweet Savior's name!
It wasn't to the palace of great Herod
Or to the high priest of Sanhedrin.
Not even sent to Pilate's royal quarters;
It was to simple, tender hearted, men.
A simple man, who'd go to find the lost sheep
Even in the darkest part of night ~
With voice that little lambs all would respond to.
The Good Shepherd's voice and the warmth of His light!
For, Jesus, while here, always sought the lost sheep
And, still, if your heart tunes in just right,
You'll hear the call, “Come home, lost lamb. I love you!”
Just answer and feel His arm 'round you tight!
"Good Shepherd, come. I am weary of darkness!
Wolves howl beside me. I need Thy light!
Good Shepherd. Yes, I know and feel You love me.
Carry me back to Thy safe fold tonight!"

Peace on the earth! Oh, beloved, let's sing it!
Joy to the World that will not be the same!
Good will to men sent to us from our Father;
Everything given in the sweet Shepherd's name...
All given in the Lamb of Calvary's shame!

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the
throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
Music is Glory to God in the Highest

The Lights of Christmas ~Marjorie Morrison

                                                                   


      The Lights of Christmas

                                                           
The twinkling lights of emerald green
And brilliant blue and white
Are piercing darkness, all enshrouded
In the black of night.

The scarlet Christmas lights reveal
To us the price He paid
In giving all, His life in death,
The way to God was made.

The greens remind us of His love
In making life forever,
That we who trust Him may be sure
That He'll forsake us never.

The blues speak of eternity,
The never ending span,
The timeless age, unnumbered years,
According to His plan.

The hue most beautiful of all
Tells of His righteousness,
A robe of snowy, spotless white,
In faith ours to possess.

The tree's bedecked, the window's bright,
A star and tinkling bell,
The gifts are made, the carol's played,
Do not the story tell.

He came to die and not to live
We worship not the child,
But God incarnate, holy, great,
Not virgin, or infant mild.

We cannot worship stars above,
Nor mangers filled with hay,
Not e'en the cross made out of wood,
Raised to the sky that day.

But Christ alone, for He is God,
He's all we'll ever need.
Remember not His birth alone,
For in His Word we read:

"This do in memory of me,"
His death, for this He came.
His body broken, bleeding sore,
He hung in blinding shame.

The sun refused to shine at noon,
The darkness fell as night,
The temple veil was rent in twain,
God spurned this Prince of Light.

On Him was sin, all yours and mine,
A black and ugly guilt.
The world's Light died, "It's done," He cried,
His precious blood was spilt.

It's crimson red, it's giving life,
We have in faith believed it,
For sinners we can now be free,
Because we have received it.

So, Christmas lights of red and green,
Of amber, blue, and white,
We look beyond the lovely scene,
To God our Christmas Light.
