christmas bible verses

For to us a Child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. - Isaiah 9:6
In the midst of all the festivities and the celebrations, let’s remember why we are doing all of this. Christmas is about the “birth” of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. How He left heaven to be born in a lowly manger. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement. Let us celebrate this Christmas, with a grateful heart.

The headlines are horrifying. But as Christians, you and I have every reason to be confident. The angel did say, after all, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:14). Jesus is our peace. He is the Prince of peace. That’s right, the peace He gives transcends all understanding, and will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. So despite the news and loss and pain, peace is not only available, it is possible. May the Lord of Peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. Amen

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. John 1:14
Why did Jesus come to earth as God in human form? Was it to give us the ultimate teachings ever? No. Though they were the greatest teachings ever given, He came here for more than that. Did Jesus come to set the perfect example of how a man or woman should live? He came to do that and much more. Did Jesus walk this earth merely to do miracles and heal people? While He always reached out to people in need, that was not His primary purpose.
C. S. Lewis said it well: “The Son of God became a man that men might become sons of God.” Now that is something worth celebrating.
Merry Christmas!

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” ~ Isaiah 9:6 KJV

“….and have come to worship Him.” Matthew 2:2
This Christmas let us feel the awe and wonder the shepherds felt when they heard the good news of the Saviour’s birth, fall at Jesus’ feet as did the Magi, and gaze upon His beauty as Mary would have when she first set her eyes on her Saviour when He was born. Let this adoration never fade away even after the celebrations die down, long after you wrap up and put away the ornaments and decorations. Let us continue to worship and adore Him in awe all through the year.
