What has happened to the good songs we used to hear and sing at Christmas? Now all we hear are the lulling sounds of the Santa songs, rather than the uplifting songs about the birth of our Lord and Savior - Jesus Christ.
What has Santa Claus done that is so terrible? He has lured us away from the very thoughts of Jesus Christ - the real reason for Christmas and every other day.
When are we again going to celebrate the real reason for Christmas - the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior? If we do not begin very soon, it will not be much longer before no one will know or remember the real reason for Christmas. Cherishing the birth of our Savior will have been wiped totally from our minds. Just what Satan would have wanted.
Now we can adorn our homes with more embellishment of tinsel, lights, and gifts and focus totally on our Santa Claus. Now we will have a generation that doesn’t have an inkling as to the real reason for Christmas, other than that it must be for Santa Claus. Nothing could be more tragic. How could we be so naive! Santa Claus for Jesus Christ?
We need to begin to instill in ourselves and our children that Jesus Christ is the reason for Christmas and every other day also. Why? Because only one can promise us everlasting joy - everlasting life.
We all need a Savior, not a Santa Claus.
Ponder Luke 2:10-11
