The Christmas season is full of God’s faithfulness, His promises and His redeeming love. His Word outlines His truths, His sacrifice and His zealous love for us all, so it’s a great way to stay focused on what’s really important during this time of the year. Here are some of the best holiday Bible verses to meditate on this Christmas.
1. John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
This verse relays the beautiful and holy gift our Father gave us; this is the greatest gift to humankind. May we reflect on His goodness and just how mighty His love is for us to have given up His only Son for us.
2. Isaiah 9:6
“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”
Jesus Christ is our Prince of Peace, our mighty Healer, our Savior. This verse speaks volumes about the Christ we have the honor and blessing of serving, knowing and loving. There is truly no one like Him.
3. Matthew 1:21
“She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
May this verse stir up an excitement for our King, may it make us reflect on His holy purpose, His sacrifice and His whole life. May we reflect on His purpose for having come to save all of humanity from their old ways and their sin, so that they may reborn into a new life of faith and communion with Jesus. That is a miracle.
4. John 1:14
“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
May we ever believe and have hope in God’s Word, because our God is the Word, and He is ever with us, sustaining us, guiding us into still waters and edifying and enriching our souls with who He is.
5. James 1:17
“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.”
All good and perfect gifts are directly from our God; may we simply give thanks to Him for all things in our lives, not only during this season, but every day. May we worship Him with thanksgiving always, and praise Him for all of His wonderful deeds. He will never stop working in our lives.
6. John 14:27
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”
This is a powerful verse once we accept its truth and reality; there is a peace that we can have that transcends all understanding, a peace that can only derive from the Father, a holy peace. May we not lose heart as He tells us to, and may be keep strong, fight the good fight and wrap ourselves daily in His light and the peace which he gives us freely.
7. 2 Corinthians 9:15
“Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.”
It is indeed unspeakable. We will lose our words for how great our God is, our greatest gift in living. May we always worship Him with our lips, seek Him with our hearts and honor Him with our actions.
Make this Christmas unforgettable. Hold your family close. Give thanks. Be merry.
