May God bless you and your family during this holiday season. My family and I celebrate Christmas and the birth of Jesus. However you choose to celebrate, I hope you find happiness and a sense of comfort, peace and strength.
Here are some quotations from the Holy Bible that depict the life of Jesus Christ.
JESUS’ BIRTH: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11 KJV).
JESUS’ GROWTH AS A CHILD: “And the Child grew and became strong; He was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on Him” (Luke 2:40 NIV).
JESUS’ MINISTRY AS AN ADULT : “…Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God” (Luke 8:1 NIV).
JESUS’ CRUCIFIXION: “‘What shall I do, then, with the one you call the King of the Jews?’ Pilate asked them. ‘Crucify him!’ they shouted” (Mark 15:12 NIV).
JESUS’ DEATH: “And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost” (Mark 15:37 KJV).
JESUS’ RESURRECTION: “The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; He has risen, just as he said’ ” (Matthew 28:5-6 NIV).
JESUS’ ASCENSION INTO HEAVEN: “And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven” (Luke 24:51 KJV).
JESUS’ GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE AFTER PHYSICAL DEATH: “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” (John 3:16 NIV).
