Merry Christmas

Christmas is Special because of Easter ... Christ Jesus laid down his life for us. He was raised to life again and HE is the way we can have LIFE to the full - eternal life!! THE best gift ever!!!




John 11:25-27 English Standard Version (ESV)

25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.[a] Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.”

Advent Day 24 - He is our PEACE

Ephesians 2:12-22 English Standard Version (ESV)

12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,[a] but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by[b] the Spirit.

Advent 23 - God's free gift!

We are almost there ... Advent is nearly over and Christmas is nearly here! How's your preparations going? Do you do presents?

Remembering today God's amazing gift to us through Jesus, as clearly recorded in Ephesians.


Ephesians 2:8-9 English Standard Version (ESV)

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.




The line art ....

Advent 22 - Jesus redeems us that we might be adopted



Galatians 4:4-7 English Standard Version (ESV)

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.

Advent 21 - Joseph, Mary and Jesus flee to Egypt (to fulfil prophecy)

Matthew 2:12-15 English Standard Version (ESV)

12 And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way.

The Flight to Egypt

13 Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” 14 And he rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed to Egypt 15 and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

Advent 20 - Wise Men worshipping Jesus

People always think there were 3 Wisemen.. but there may have been more - or less ... we do know from the Bible stories that there were 3 presents - Gold and Frankincense and Myrrh. Lately I've been getting into essential oils and I have to say I love my Frankincense!! :D




Matthew 2:10-11 English Standard Version (ESV)

10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 And going into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.


Here's the lineart! If you or children in your life are colouring in these advent images I'd love to see some!! :)
