Names of Jesus Paper Ornaments

 

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things were made;
without him nothing was made that has been made.

John 1:1-3

John 1 may not sound like a typical portion of Scripture to be memorizing during the Christmas season, but as you memorize and reflect on the meaning, it becomes a wonderful text to dwell upon leading up to the celebration of Christ’s birth!

The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.

John 1:9

Who is Jesus? Why did He come to earth? What were the circumstances surrounding his birth? How did people  respond to His coming? How will you respond to the Good News of God sending His One and Only Son, wrapped in flesh, to die on the cross for the payment of your sins?  These are just a few of the questions my children and I are contemplating as we take time to memorize John 1 and study the significance of some of the titles given to Jesus as we work our way through His Great Name: Jesus (Volume 2).

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,
who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

As we study His Great Name, I am continuing to attempt to come up with additional, creative ways that we can have His name before our eyes, ingrained in our minds, and pulling on our hearts this Christmas.  Why?  Well, as we grow older and mature in our faith, we need reminders that Jesus is more than a baby born in the manger long ago.  Our Heavenly Father sent the Son of God, the long awaited Messiah, Immanuel, the Creator, the Alpha and Omega, the Light of the World, the Servant of the Lord, the Lamb of God, etc.  – to redeem His people and to bring glory to His Name!

Today, I want to share one more possibility for intentionally setting a reminder of who Jesus truly is before our hearts and minds – making Names of Jesus Paper Ornaments.  As you prepare and assemble these ornaments with your children, I pray that you will take time to look up the verses under each title of Jesus and reflect on the amazing outpouring of love and mercy God has shown to us in sending the gift of His Son, Jesus!
