12 Bible Verses for Christmas

12 Bible Verses for Christmas

This time of year I can't help but wonder at the anticipation of Isaiah, the wonder of the shepherds, the joy of Simeon, and the adoration of the wise men. Christ, come down to earth, meek and lowly; a servant. Below are some of my favorite Christmas bible verses, starting with one of my favorite passages… the day Simeon met the Messiah!

At that time there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon. He was righteous and devout and was eagerly waiting for the Messiah to come and rescue Israel. The Holy Spirit was upon him and had revealed to him that he would not die until he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. That day the Spirit led him to the Temple. So when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord as the law required, Simeon was there. He took the child in his arms and praised God, saying,

“Sovereign Lord, now let your servant die in peace, as you have promised.
I have seen your salvation, which you have prepared for all people.
He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel!”

Luke 2:25-32

    Thank you so much for this post, I am making my own cards this year and I hate to admit I don’t know my Bible as well as I should. This has given me a reference to choose the feeling I want for my cards.
