30 Bible Verses for Christmas

God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit are all equal, one essence, one Deity, but they all hold very DIFFERENT personalities. 

God, the Father is VERY serious. When you are in HIS presence it is that, take off your shoes you are in the presence of THE LORD (Exodus 3:5). It is incredibly respectful and you bow because you realize His vast power over everything, including your very life. 

There’s a seriousness there, a reverential awe. You don’t speak to Him unless He asks you to speak. You’re just speechless in awe of His majesty.


Jesus is a lot less serious. Jesus is like your brother. You can play around with Him, make a joke and it’s okay. You can hang out with Him, feel more comfortable with Him. He’s your buddy, your friend, your brother. He’s still God, still holy, still respectable on all counts. He’s still perfect, but the personality is different. 

When spending time with both, God the Father and God the Son, Jesus Christ, I prefer to spend time with God the Father. He’s much more direct, to the point, and He’s my favorite. But getting to spend time with God the Father is VERY difficult. Neither can look on sin, so you must be completely holy, CONSTANTLY repenting of your sins (known and unknown) and in a pure heart time in your life. You MUST be pure in the moments you spend with either God or Jesus. It’s necessary. 

Most of the time, we spend time with angels, who are doing the work of God on His behalf. They communicate with us (through Scripture) and lead us, guide us, and help us.

It’s more rare to be able to get to spend time with God the Father or Jesus, so when those times come, it’s absolutely a “Mary and Martha thing”. You put everything down and you LISTEN. You’re not working, you’re not doing other things. They are holy, perfect, and you are listening to their every Word, blessed to be in their presence. 

But when you ARE in their presence, it’s the most incredible experience you’ll ever know, and the most joyous moments of your entire life!!!

NOTHING, and I say NOTHING, in this world can compare to spending time with the Living God.

Today, for Christmas, we are celebrating JESUS birth. We are celebrating a time for one of the “personalities” of God (I realize that using a term like “personalities of God” is humanizing His existence, but that’s the best way to explain it in human terms so that we can understand). 

Jesus is your brother. He came to earth to die on the cross so that you and I may be saved. He also took away the Old Testament sacrificial system of sacrificing an animal (to which, I personally am VERY thankful for!) Can you imagine having to buy or get an animal and kill it to atone for your sins? Not me! I couldn’t do it (I cry at Bambi when the mom dies!), so I am especially thankful to Jesus for becoming the one-time lamb for us, so that we never need to sacrifice animals again. Thank you, Jesus!

Jesus answers to the Lord, so He is 100% submissive to God, the Father, just like we should be also. Jesus is a great PICTURE of us, but also of God. He serves as a great MODEL of how God IS and how we should be. It’s the perfect blend between God and man…Jesus. 

He lowered Himself to be like man, left Heaven (an amazing place) for US! Because God (and Jesus) care about us so immensely, He died for us. Christmas, in essence, is His birthday. 

Since God was never born, He was always already in existence (Revelation 1:8; Psalm 90:2), there’s not a date we can celebrate, but with Jesus, thankfully, we can! So we can celebrate God (all three in one) on this day, not JUST Jesus. 

It’s an amazing time, here on earth, where we are allowed to know more about our Lord. As He walked the earth amongst His people, yet never sinned. What an amazing treat that would be!!!

Some people came all around to see Jesus, some for His miracles and curiosity and some because they loved Him, accepted Him, and wanted to follow Him. Either way, anyone who is in the presence of Jesus, whether in spirit now or back then in person, it’s a REAL treat and we celebrate HIM and all He’s done (and does) for us every day, including the cross. 

This is His birthday, a celebration of life, a celebration of Him, a celebration of His deity and His sacrifice to and for us. He is amazing, One to be treasured. 

Today, let’s look at these 30 Bible verses for Christmas, as we reflect on all He’s done for us in our life throughout history!
