The Ministry Serving Ministry team would like to thank each of our readers for another year of learning, planning and dreaming with us on our blog. We pray God’s richest blessings on you as you celebrate the Christmas season. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of parties, parades and planning, take time to remember the true meaning of this wonderful holiday—the beautiful birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Here are some of our favorite Christmas quotes and Scriptures you can meditate on as you pause and reflect on the wonder of Christmas.
- “He was created of a mother whom He created. He was carried by hands that He formed.” – St. Augustine
- “The Almighty appeared on earth as a helpless human baby, needing to be fed and changed and taught to talk like any other child. The more you think about it, the more staggering it gets. Nothing in fiction is so fantastic as this truth of the Incarnation.” – J.I. Packer

Merry Christmas from our team to yours! May God’s hope and peace bring you exceedingly great joy as you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. See you back here in 2017!
