12 Bible Verses to Meditate on This Christmas

   This Christmas I wanted to reflect on the reason God delivered His Son Jesus. We as Christians know the birth of Christ was God’s New Covenant with man. Once the Messiah entered the world in the flesh the following the Lord changed. The Holy Spirit is now the way Christ accepts us in the kingdom of God.

   Here are 12 Bible verses that keep me grounded in God’s word. I am grateful to have been saved and learning to improve on building Christ-like characteristics.

   the house of bondage. (Exodus 20:2)
