Profound remarks spoken or written by nice Christian authors are sometimes cited when the subject of Christmas arises. Augustine is recorded to have stated about this holy vacation, “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.” British Christian titan C.S. Lewis wrote, “The Son of God became a man to enable men to become sons of God.” Both feedback are stunning and true.
This yr marks the 275th birthday of the United States – a mere blip on the display in comparison with Christianity. We had been based by a rebellious lot who initially sought out this rugged land seeking spiritual freedom. Today we’re a nation bitterly divided by politics. Still, we puzzled what nice ideas, concepts, and quotes “we the people” needed to supply this Christmas that speaks of real love and peace in order that we’d unite our hearts and minds for a mere second to discover a very American Christmas.
So, with out additional ado, listed below are some quotes about Christmas from our fellow countrymen, previous and current:
“Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” – Calvin Coolidge
“Christ didn’t only come into the world that first Christmas night in Bethlehem, but He wants to come into our lives today, and every day of the year.” – Billy Graham
“All the Christmas presents in the world are worth nothing without the presence of Christ.” – David Jeremiah
“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
“Yet as I read the birth stories about Jesus I cannot help but conclude that though the world may be tilted toward the rich and powerful, God is tilted toward the underdog.” ― Philip Yancey
“How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, His precepts!” – Benjamin Franklin
(*10*) – John MacArthur
“May we not ‘spend’ Christmas or ‘observe’ Christmas, but rather ‘keep’ it.” – Peter Marshall
“You can never truly enjoy Christmas until you can look up into the Father’s face and tell him you have received his Christmas gift.” – John R. Rice
“Then the Grinch considered one thing he hadn’t earlier than! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a retailer. What if Christmas…maybe…means a little bit extra! – Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss)
We hope these few quotes out of your fellow Americans encourage you to deliver the message of Christmas forth in your phrases and actions this yr. And a very Merry Christmas from your pals at Liberty Nation!
Today within the city of David a Savior has been born to you; he’s the Messiah, the Lord. – Luke 2:11
