Have you ever spent a summer night belly-up on a backyard blanket studying the stars? Some look as if they’ll plop right into your lap. Some are like pieces of glitter in a faraway place. Others, like the North Star, are bright enough to guide any lost wanderer home.
Jesus calls himself the Bright Morning Star. He shines brighter than any other star in the sky, providing light to illuminate our hearts and minds to the truth of His salvation. Second Peter 1:19 explains, “… as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”
What better way to light up your home this season than with a beautiful reminder of His shimmering light in our hearts! The Bright Morning Star tree topper, glittering atop your Christmas tree, will warm your home with Jesus’ irresistible glow. Wrap the evergreen branches with coordinating glitter-edged star garland for a tree that shouts of His glory.
Jesus is the Bright Morning Star, shining brilliantly to announce His arrival that first Christmas morning. As He rested snuggly on Mary’s chest, a star rose into the night sky, guiding wise travelers from afar right to His side. Each new day the star rose again, directing their journey, pointing them toward the Savior they sought.
Point your family to this same Savior by proclaiming His name and worth on your holiday tree. Let the Bright Morning Star lead you home.
