Christmas Object Lesson: Explore 5 Colors of the Season

4. Gold

Gold symbolizes the kingship and royalty of Jesus Christ. He came to this earth as a baby. But He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 2:1-2  Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.

5. Silver

Silver has two meanings. The color symbolizes the star of Bethlehem that the wise men followed. But it also symbolizes Jesus as our Great Shepherd. In Bible times, shepherds rang bells to help the sheep find their way home. Jesus came to help us find our way back to God.

John 10:11  I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
