Never forget how special it is that our heavenly Father choses to speak to us, even through our friends’ Christmas cards.Photo by Laura Nyhuis on Unsplash

It is card writing season. Christmas cards. New Year cards. Thank you cards.

You can always tell when the writer has put that extra piece of thought and consideration into your card. Especially when their message relates particularly strongly to you.

It’s extra special when you realise God, the creator of heaven and earth, is speaking to you through the words someone has written you.

So here are seven Bible verses to encourage the people you are writing to over the next couple of weeks, because you’ll never know whose heart you will deeply touch.

1. A Bible verse to remind us how much God loves us.

John 3:16 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.

2. A Bible verse to remind us where all blessings truly come from.

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change

3. A Bible verse to remind us that we are saved through God’s mercy and grace.

Titus 3:4-7: But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

4. A Bible verse that reminds us the birth of our Saviour.

Matthew 2:11 And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.

5. A Bible verse that wishes peace to everyone.

1 Corinthians 1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

6. A Bible verse that reminds us how great love is.

1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Christmas is a time to share and care but beyond all that, let’s not forget to celebrate the real reason for the season and that is the birth of Jesus Christ. Take this opportunity to spread the word and remind others what Christmas is really about.
