Merry Christmas!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. - Isaiah 9:6 - Verse Image

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

2,000 years ago, Jesus came to earth to become Immanuel, “God with us.” And through this one sacrificial act of love, now we get to experience intimacy with God forever!

As we celebrate Jesus’ birth today, here’s how you can spread the great news of His love: share the Verse Image above with your friends and family.

From all of us at YouVersion, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!

This week, get vivid reminders of the joy of Christmas with our special YouVersion Original Christmas Plan. If you haven’t begun the Christmas Challenge yet, this is a great way to join.

To help you get started, we’ve provided the first Plan day below:


Day 1: The Story Begins - What exactly is joy? To unpack it, let’s go back to when God created the world. Imagine you’ve just been brought to life by the breath of God, and as God pulls you up from the ground, He smiles at you. From then on, whenever He looks at you, His face lights up.
