First Covenant Church
A letter from Santa Claus:
A long time ago in the little town of Bethlehem, I was there one winter night. Though always out of sight, I lingered there at the manger.
On my knees in front of the new born King the meaning of Christmas was given new life. Presents and trees are often put out of sight. But, I never put away what I saw that night.
Mary and Joseph, young to be sure were cuddled together just to be warm. The cow in the barn gave off heat and a soft moo or two. Then there was a cry of a new born and all the animals in the cattle stall stood quiet. Without a moo, a baa, or a chirp they all, with me, fell to the floor. There we gave honor to Jesus the Son of the Most High God.
As I stayed there for a while I could almost hear Him say, “You’ve got to get crackin’. With every toy you deliver, you bring joy too. The rapture is soon coming and you know I’ll be back. In the meantime carry Me in your heart and tell of Me wherever you fly.”
So here I am telling you that Christmas is all about Jesus.
I’ve kept my promise to Him, how about you?
