10 Christmas Quotes To Pause And Reflect On In Your New Year

Christmas is behind us as we venture into our New Year. We can keep Christmas near and dear all year through. It's a holiday that brings merrymaking and joviality. People look forward to carrying on family traditions and activities like decorating Christmas trees, making cookies, having Dinner with family and friends, and planning parties. It's also a time to gather with loved ones to pause and reflect on why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. The birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

The Christmas season may find us in a busy and chaotic frame of mind. But don't worry, why don't you Come along with me as we recapture the genuine reason for the season with 10 Christian quotes to reflect on in your New year.

—"Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life."— Corrie Ten Boom.

—"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

—"On that first Christmas over 2,000 years ago, God did something that we can barely grasp: He became a man. Think of it: The God who created the universe stooped down from Heaven and became a human being!"— Billy Graham.

—"Jesus is the answer to the problems placed on us and the problems found within us."— Lysa TerKeurst.

—"He was created of a mother whom He created. He was carried by hands that He formed. He cried in the manger in wordless infancy. He, the Word, without whom all human eloquence is mute." —Saint Augustine.

—"For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us, and the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6— NASB

—"God walked down the stairs of heaven with a Baby in His arms." —Paul Scherer.

—"For, first, the birth of Christ was the incarnation of God: it was God taking upon himself human—a mystery, a wondrous mystery, to be believed in rather than to be defined." — Charles Spurgeon.

—"The Son of God became a man to enable men to become sons of God."— C. S. Lewis

—"I heard the bells on Christmas Day. Their old, familiar carols play, And wild and sweet The words repeat Of peace on earth, good-will to men!" — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
