Our Top 20 Bible Verses for Remembering the Meaning of Christmas
Christmas has always been a time of reflection for me, as well as a time of great joy! After all, Christmas isn't about material gifts under the tree, it's about our Father's gift, the celebration of the birth of Jesus, who died on the cross and rose from the dead, paying the price for our sins.
