  2. At the same time, I believe there are others who will need them also.

How To Use These Christmas Bible Verses

Copy and paste into a word document, change the font and a colour that you like and print out onto card stock. Trim or die cut and decorate with rubber stamps or your own drawings. Adhere to your card front. 

Choose your favourite scripture verse and write inside the card. The inside left side of the card would be a most suitable place for these Christmas bible verses as you would want space to put your personal handwritten greetings and message on the right.

Add Your Own Christmas Bible Verses Below

Do you have a Christmas bible verse to contribute? Or something (insight) to share about any of the 25 verses listed here. Comment below and tell us the scripture verse(s) about the birth of Christ that speaks to you.

Let's include at least one of these Christmas bible verses in our Christmas cards and keep Christ in our Christmas Celebration. Without Him, there isn't any reason to celebrate at all. Without His coming, we are lost and will die in our sins. (Romans 3:23 - for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God).

And it's not just about the afterlife, it's also about now, our present sojourn here on earth. Because of the first coming of our Lord, and His death on the cross, we are now able to enter into the very presence of God and enjoy His goodness and manifold blessing here and now. Praise the Lord!
