Jesus Is The Reason For The Season

Monday, December 22, 2014



emoticon Jesus Is The Reason emoticon

In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we just heed His call.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Let's keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.

Jesus or Santa : Who Would You Choose?

Sunday, December 21, 2014







OR







Santa lives at the North Pole.
JESUS is everywhere.

Santa rides in a sleigh
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.

Santa comes but once a year
JESUS is an ever present help.

Santa fills your stockings with goodies
JESUS supplies all your needs.

Santa comes down your chimney uninvited
JESUS stands at your door and knocks.. and then enters your heart.

Santa only gives you things if you are good.
JESUS loves you, no matter what!

You have to stand in line to see Santa
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.

Santa lets you sit on his lap
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.

Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl, What's your name?"
JESUS knew our name before we were formed in the womb. Not only does He know our name, He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.

Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly
JESUS has a heart full of love.

All Santa can offer is a hearty HO HO HO
JESUS offers health, help and hope.

Santa says "You better not cry"
JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you."

Santa's little helpers make toys
JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts and repairs broken homes.

Santa may make you chuckle but
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.

While Santa puts gifts under your tree
JESUS became our gift and died on the Cross.

It's obvious there is really no comparison.
We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about.
We need to put Christ back in Christmas.
Jesus is still the reason for the season.


Who would you choose?


~~~ I CHOOSE JESUS!

    Me, too! When my girls were small, I always told them that Santa was actually St. Nicholas and that Jesus needed some help looking after the children.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20

    Thank you so much for these reminders. I love them! I'm just thankful that God gives me a promise and a gift everyday. Tomorrow is never promised, but when I open my eyes, I realize and thank God, that He gave me a day never promised, which is HIS GIFT TO ME!!!

Blessings!
