“You better watch out; you better not cry!”
Remember, being told as a child that Santa Claus is coming to town, so you better be good? And, suddenly you would change your bad behavior.
Just knowing that the big jolly man with the white beard was coming to town was enough for any kid to stop misbehaving and put a smile on their face. But, do you know that there’s a REAL someone much greater than the myth of Santa Claus who really is coming to town in a twinkle-of-an-eye? That someone is Jesus Christ.
Jesus is NOT imaginary or a myth. And, HE really does see and hear everything we say or do; even our thoughts and intentions. Jesus isn’t someone who only comes into our lives one time of the year. For those of us who Believe, HE is with us each and every day.
Jesus wants to come into every little boy’s and every little girl’s heart no matter how naughty or nice they have been. According to the Bible, Jesus came to Earth to save “whosoever” will call upon His Name. (See Romans chapter 13.)
The greatest gift ever given unto man was not found in a sled or in a big red sack, but was born in a manger over two thousand years ago. The Gift of Jesus Christ is the only gift that keeps on giving for a lifetime and throughout all of eternity.
This year instead of keeping an eye out for Santa, keep your eyes focused on Jesus; the real reason for the season.
Merry Christmas and Remember, God Loves You!
