For followers of Jesus, there should be no Santa in Christmas. I realize I probably lost half of you right there thinking this would be some legalistic diatribe or Scrooge-inspired missive. But if you are serious about the Lordship of Christ, I hope you’ll hear me out. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year because of Jesus and nothing else.
The whole “good will toward men” thing happens only because the Prince of Peace was born into this world a couple of thousand years ago. It is the birth of our Savior that brings joy to the world. The peace and joy of Christmas find their source in the birth of Jesus and nowhere else.
