"Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift"  - 2 Corinthians 9:15

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning"  - James 1:17

The unspeakable gift spoken of by Paul in 2 Corinthians was given to all of us before the world was even formed. While among the hosts of heaven, we witnessed the hand of God in His infinite wisdom extend the hand of mercy by placing his Son upon the alter of redeeming power. The stars in the night sky reflect the celestial beings of heaven—the Rising Star shining most bright above the earth.

Our journey to this world means at some point we will become a fallen star. Departed from the Father of Lights. The Rising Star descended below the greatest of depths to bring us back. Just as the wise men traveled far, following a star, we too must make our journey back following the Rising Star. Like the wisemen, we make the journey bringing gifts—offering our hearts to Him in humble gratitude, for the sacrifice he made for us.


Lights in the Heavens - Heaven and the endless hosts therein

The Rising Star - The unspeakable gift spoken of by Paul in 2 Corinthains 9:15. The gift to save all—the Son of God. Matthew records the 3 wisemen followed a star to find the Christ child in Bethlehem, bringing gifts. The star was the sign and symbol of the Savior Himself. A light for the travelers in the dark. A light giving direction toward salvation. The travelers searching for His saving grace brought with them the gifts to show their thanks. What are some gifts that we bring the savior in our own lives and how are we traveling toward the star?

The 6 Stars - The 6 archangels, one for each millennium (Christ being one of the 7), these are the prophets of each dispensation—it can also represent prophets in general.

The Young Shepherds and Sheep - These symbols mirror the stars in the sky, the bright star being our shepherd. We are also to reflect the light of the savior, and we have been asked to do so. We are like the young shepherds, on the Lord’s errand to feed his sheep. His mission was to come and gather his flock. As we find our way back to the Good Shepherd, we then turn and gather His flock as well.

The Ewe and Lamb - These symbolize the holy Christmas birth of the Savior or the “unblemished lamb.” A homage to Christ and his coming into the world. A perfect offering to for our sins. The unspeakable gift from God.

The Fire - Another light in darkness upon the earth—another symbol of the Savior and our Redeeming Light.
