What Christmas Is All About…
Often times, we are caught in the spirit of Christmas that we sometimes fail to remember the reason for the season. As a result, I went in search of some of the bible verses and quotes that will help us remember what Christmas is all about for Christians and believers around the world.
- “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us) ~~ Matthew 1:23
- “ For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” ~~ Isaiah 9:6
- “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”~~ John 3:16
- “Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love, a time when the love of God and the love of our fellow men should prevail over all hatred and bitterness, a time when our thoughts and deeds and the spirit of our lives manifest in the presence of God” ~~ George F.McDougall
- “This is Christmas: not the tinsel, not the giving and receiving, not even the carols, but the humble heart that receives anew, the wondrous gift, the Christ” ~~Frank McKibben
- “Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas” ~~~~ Calvin Coolidge
- “The magic of Christmas is not the presents, but in His presence”~~Unknown
- “Oh Come let us adore Him”~~~Universally used
- “I want a Christmas that whispers Jesus” ~~Ann Voskamp.
10. “But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.” Luke 2:10
Of course, this does not cover all the reasons for Christmas, but as a reminder of what we should focus on not only at this time of year, but all year round. When all is said and done, we should know that Jesus is the reason for Christmas!
