The Christmas card was created by a man named Sir Henry Cole back in the 19th century. But in 1842 an Englishman named J.C. Horsley heard about this good idea and started selling Christmas cards. These early cards were illustrated with Nativity scenes, Christmas themes, and warm Christmas greetings. Today there are more than 2 billion Christmas cards sent out every year in the United States alone.
John 20:21 says, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
By sending Christmas cards that specifically focus on the hope and peace that Jesus brought, we are able to reach people near and far with a message that can change lives and homes forever.
Make a list of people that you can show God’s love to by sending them a Christmas card.
