Christmas Quotes and Meditations

 

  • The most important part about Christmas is the first six letters.

    *****

  • God grant you the light of Christmas, whcih is faith; the warmth of Christmas, which is Love; the radiance of Christmas, which is purity; the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice; the belief of Christmas, which is truth; the all of Christmas, which is Christ.

    *****

  • I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas day. We try to crowd into it the long-overdue deeds of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year.

    *****

  • Christmas is based on an exchange of gifts: The gift of God to man - His unspeakable gift of His Son; and the gift of man to God - when we present our bodies as a living sacrifice (Ro 12:1) and, like the Macedonians (2Cor 8:5), first give ourselves to God. No one has kept or can keep Christmas until he has had a part in this two way transaction.

    *****

  • Let this Christmas season be a renewing of the mind of Christ in our thinking, and a cleansing of our lives by His pure presence. Let His joy come to our weary world through us.

    *****

  • In infancy He startled a king; in boyhood He puzzled the doctors; in manhood He walked upon the billows and hushed the sea to sleep. He healed the multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His services. He never wrote a book, yet not all the libraries of the world could hold the books that could be written about Him. He never wrote a song, yet He has finished the theme of more songs than all songs combined. He never founded a college, yet all the schools together cannot boast of as many students as He has. Great men have come and gone, yet He lives on. Death could not destroy Him, the grave could not hold Him.

    *****

    *****

  • Christmas is a time for giving, not swapping: giving up sin, giving in to Christ and giving out to our fellow man that we might meet him in his need.

    *****

  • The blessedness of Christmas is all wrapped up in the person of Jesus. Our relationship determines the measure of the blessing.

    *****

  • You can never truly enjoy Christmas until you can look up into the Father's face and tell Him you have received His Christmas gift.

    *****

Christmas is Love come down to Earth, A gift to the world of infinite worth !
