The Three Gifts To Jesus

It is not 6th of January today, but I will be talking about these three significant gifts that the three magi gave as an offering to Jesus in the manger. We heard a lot that the three magi's gift to little Jesus was "Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. But do we know what was the significance of those three gifts to baby Jesus?
Gold is a gift fit for a king. Frankincense is the incense that the priest use during the worship. Myrrh is a spice used for burial. Thus, Jesus was honored by these gifts as King, God and Sacrifice.
"Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him." Matthew 2:2 NIV
