This started as a funny thought about people dressing up as Jesus, but then it took a serious turn
Why don’t they ever have any one dressed up a baby Jesus? Would that be blasphemous? I’m not sure where that line is.
People dress up as Santa all the time, but santa is no supreme being and he has nothing to do with the meaning of Christmas. Instead of having Santa at the mall, they should have Nativity scenes set up and people can visit and ask Jesus for things but the difference between asking Santa something at the mall and asking Jesus something at the mall is that Jesus can actually hear you and answer you because it’s called PRAYING.
Santa is a jolly fellow, don’t get me wrong. But you know that saying “Jesus is the Reason for the Season”? Well that’s still true. Every year. Santa can’t do anything for you. Jesus can. And He will if you just ask Him. Wow. This just turned into a seriously religious post, but that’s fine. I love Jesus. I’m not ashamed. I can blog about Him if I want to 🙂
Christmas should not be a time of stress, or struggle, or shopping until you’re in debt. It should be a time of reflection on what Jesus’ birth means to your life. If you don’t know what the birth of Jesus means to you, then you should pick up the Bible and read. Jesus’ birth changed your life whether you realize it or not.
