What Does Christmas Mean To You?

Danika of Thinking Kids

Christmas for me is a special time to concentrate on Christ’s incarnation — fully God and fully human. I see it as a time to remember his undeserved grace upon my life, and a reminder to love those around me in a sacrificial way.

Leah of As We Walk Along The Road

As Christians, we celebrate Jesus’ birth at Christmas time. We do focus on the fact that December was likely not Jesus’ birth in a historical sense and that we should celebrate Jesus all the time, not just in December.

 

Christmas time provides a time to have family fun and traditions and time to spend with family we don’t see as often.

Aurie of Our Good Life

Christmas is pure magic. The idea that God sent his precious child into a world that was full of sin gets me every single time. That by Jesus’ sacrifice we are adopted into his family and given a full pardon and forgiveness of our sins is amazing. A tiny babe changed the course of the world, and that is Christmas to me.

Heidi of Our Out-of-Sync Life

Christmas is hope. It’s the hope and promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ. It’s the hope of a personal relationship with a God who loves us deeply.

What verse do you focus on at Christmastime and why?

 Danika of Thinking Kids

Isaiah chapter 53 is generally used to celebrate the Resurrection, but I think it’s a wonderful chapter to remember during Christmas as well. After all, the wonder of Jesus’ arrival is that he came to suffer, die and rise again as a gift of grace to us. How marvelous that God became man on our behalf!

Leah of As We Walk Along The Road

John 10:9-11. Why did Jesus really come? It wasn’t to be celebrated as a cute baby in a manger with shepherds and wise men standing all around. He came to bring life to us, to be the good Shepherd.

Heidi of Our Out-of-Sync Life

John 10:9-11 Why did Jesus really come? It wasn’t to be celebrated as a cute baby in a manger with shepherds and wise men standing all around. He came to bring life to us, to be the good Shepherd.

The birth of a miracle. It can happen to you too. Christ is born in the heart of every person, the moment that we accept Him as Lord. Let the birth of Christ into your heart today. Romans 10:9 read it and live by it.

Christmas to me means LOVE! John 3:16-17New International Version (NIV) 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
