'For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.'
Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
You bring us so much encouragement through the year as you pray for us and other Bible Society ministries around the world.
We know that thanks to people like you, there have been many special Christmas visits, Bible distributions and events happening all over the world this year. Christmas is a time when we see people a little more open to the Bible story and the message is that Jesus is here!
From all at Bible Society NI, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. God bless.
Catherine took these photographs in Cambodia, in June! It seems that they celebrate Christmas all year round in that particular rural church. The birth of our Lord, the Saviour of the world is certainly worth remembering all year.
Many of us enjoy Christmas with family and friends, we have a break from work and a little time to relax. Our churches host Carol Services and special events, our towns are decorated and the beautiful Christmas lights break through the dark gloom of December days. We are free to celebrate, we are free to worship and tell others of the reason for such joy at Christmas. A Saviour has been born, Christ the Lord!
Perhaps we could pause among the festivities and remember that we are truly blessed. As we think back over the year, we recall praying for people in places where freedom is not guaranteed, people who live in stifling poverty or who find themselves isolated. Let's remember those who need to know the presence of Jesus in a very real way this Christmas time.
