The Twelfth Day of Christmas

     Well, it's time to "wrap" up these Twelve Days of Christmas posts.  Let me end with some verses (you may have noticed some of them them at the beginning of previous posts) that briefly sum up the Good News of Christmas.

     "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1

     "Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:3-5

     "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14

     "For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God." Romans 3:23
     "She gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and  laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn." Luke 2:7

     'Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."' John 14:6

     "And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him [Jesus], and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left." Luke 23:33

     "Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” Luke 24: 5-7

     "And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world." John 4:14

    "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galations 2:20

     If you have any questions or want to know more, just leave a comment with your email - I won't post it.  I'd love to share with you.  I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
