Luke 1:26-38 In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man named Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you.” But she was deeply troubled by this statement, wondering what kind of greeting this could be. Then the angel told her: “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Now listen: You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David. He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and his kingdom will have no end.” Mary asked the angel, “How can this be, since I have not had sexual relations with a man?” The angel replied to her: “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore, the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. And consider your relative Elizabeth—even she has conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called childless. For nothing will be impossible with God.” “I am the Lord’s servant,” said Mary. “May it be done to me according to your word.” Then the angel left her.

The free download will include 6 pages with bible verses about the prophecies of Jesus and other inspiring scripture that Christians should live by.

Then there will be larger numbers from 1 to 24 that are the same size as the cards and also a set of smaller numbers.

There is no particular order to read the bible verses, except reading the story Jesus and Mother Mary on either Christmas Day or Christmas Eve.

I would recommend having your bible out and reading the verses before and after on each day of advent to dive more into the real reason for Christmas.

Once you’ve downloaded the PDF file from below, print out the digital files on plain copy paper or white cardstock if you want them sturdier.

Cut all the advent cards apart with a trimmer or pair of scissors.

Now there are a couple of ways to use all the advent bible verses. You can glue or attach one to a paper bag and then stick a small gift inside the bag for each day of advent.

Close the paper bags with a small clothespin, clip, or ribbon and hand them out one day at a time during the Christmas season.

Or you can add the printed scripture inside the bag and attach one of the numbers on the top of the bag. Then you can hang all of the days up and you or your child can remove each day and read the bible verse together as a family.

Because I know we all like different things, I also included a smaller number that you could print out on sticker paper and attach to boxes or bags.

And even another way to use the DIY advent calendar is to glue each number on the backside of the bible verse. This is a great way to use the advent scripture cards if you don’t want to include a little treat.

Just hang all the 24 days up with the numbers facing forward and then turn them over for the countdown. I love to hang them over a nativity scene!
