True Christian Christmas

Christmas isn't showy gifts
Or glittering decoration;
It's honoring our Savior, Jesus Christ
In humble adoration.

It's serving those less fortunate,
Meeting their needs before our own;
It's making sure at Christmas time
That no one is alone.

It's taking what we would have spent
On things that no one needs,
And using it to help someone
With service and good deeds.

Our Savior showed us how to live
With charity, faith and service.
It makes the holidays a joy,
More peaceful, and less nervous.

So let's remember Christmas is
About our Savior's birth;
That's the way to happiness,
The way to peace on earth.

Religious Christmas poems are very popular. This Christian Christmas poem reminds us why we celebrate.

Jesus Is The Reason

In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.

He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we just heed His call.

So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Let's keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.

Why We Celebrate

Why do we celebrate
Jesus’ birth at Christmas,
though we don’t know
when He was born?
It was necessary and inevitable
that we select a date
to celebrate an eternal miracle--
the coming to earth
of God in human form...Jesus,
Who changed the entire world
with His message of love,
forgiveness, humility and peace.
Christmas is an obligatory
and indispensable holiday
marking the transformation
from guiltless selfishness
to striving to follow His example
of service to God and our fellow man.
That is worth celebrating.

By Joanna Fuchs

This Christian Christmas poem suggests how to make every day more like Christmas.

Practice Jesus

If we practiced Jesus every way,
It'd be like Christmas every day;
If we, like Him, were meek and mild
And loved each woman, man and child,
If we'd read our Bible, it'd remind us,
So that every single day would find us
More and more in sweet accord
With our sweet Jesus--Master, Lord.

Then every day that we're alive
Would be like December 25.

By Joanna Fuchs

This Christian Christmas poem reminds us that the basis for Christmas is religious Christianity. The word "Christmas" refers to a Mass for Christ, a religious ritual.

Why Do We Celebrate Christmas?

Why do we celebrate Christmas,
A "Mass" for Christ, each year?
Why do we shop and give out gifts,
Basking in Christmas cheer?

Our joy is based in the Gospel,
The amazing "good news" of Christ;
We’re grateful for what He gave to us
And all He sacrificed.

Priceless gifts He brought,
Eternal life, and more,
A perfect role model for all of us,
He opened heaven’s door.

At Christmas time let’s be
Reverent and devout,
Celebrating a Christmas real and true:
Jesus Christ is what it’s about.

By Joanna Fuchs

A religious Christmas poem like this one gives a different focus to the holiday. This Christian Christmas poem is a recipe for stress relief.

A Different Kind Of Christmas

Sometimes Christmas is just overwhelming, it seems,
As we rush around buying up stuff.
We spend without end, and we rack up those bills,
But it feels like it's never enough.

So this Christmas, let's all take a different approach:
Let's try to be more in accord
With God's Christmas gift, the best one of all--
Our sweet Jesus, our Savior, our Lord.

We'll be gentle and patient, and loving and kind,
And we'll keep our priorities straight;
The gifts of the Spirit, the gifts of the heart
Are the ones that we'll all celebrate.

And our stress will decrease, and we'll feel more at peace,
As we decorate, package, and trim;
Our new Christmas will be a pure joy and delight,
As we try to be much more like Him.

By Joanna Fuchs

This free religious Christmas poem addresses the selfish materialism we sometimes see at Christmas time.

Give

If we would take just half the measure
Of what we spend on Christmas pleasure
To give to others who have less,
Our love for Jesus we’d express.

What we spend on Christmas stuff
(It's really way more than enough)
To others can mean so much more
Than trifles we often use it for.

The Bible tells us how to live;
A frequent lesson we read is "give."
It’s time to spread uncommon cheer;
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

We Celebrate Your Birth

Dear Lord, as we celebrate Your birth,
let us remember that You are the true reason for Christmas.
Let every sparkling light remind us how You illuminate our lives,
a shining beacon to guide us in our thoughts and actions each day,
and how You light us from within
in the knowledge of Your love and truth.
Let the Christmas trees, standing straight, tall, unbowed,
remind us of Your uprightness, Your goodness, Your perfection,
and Your refusal to bow to worldly temptations,
no matter how great the challenge or trouble.
Lord, as we feast on Christmas treats,
let us remember that You are the sole provider
of everything worth having, that all good things come from You.
And as we enjoy our gifts, let us never forget
that You are the greatest gift of all--our wonderful Savior,
Counselor, Giver of an eternal life whose wonders we cannot imagine.
So as we delight in Christmas, the happiest and brightest of holidays,
let us remember there would be no Christmas without You, Lord,
and let us our hearts be filled with joy, and love
and thankfulness, this Christmas and all the ones to come.
In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
