Religious Messages

Christmas is a time of religious importance, so it makes sense to send a religious themed message in your Christmas card. Here are some of our favourites:

  1. God never gives someone a gift they are not capable of receiving. If he gives us the gift of Christmas it is because we all have the ability to understand and receive it. Happy Christmas
  2. May your Christmas be filled with the true miracles and meaning of this Merry time.
  3. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given. Merry Christmas.
  4. The great challenge left to us is to cut through all the glitz and glam of the season that has grown increasingly secular and commercial, and be reminded of the beauty of the One who is Christmas.
  5. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Have a lovely Christmas.
  6. Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable Gift. Happy Christmas
  7. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Merry Christmas.
