It's Christmas, Kids Want To See Santa—
What About You?


Who do you want to see?

As Christmas rapidly approaches, the malls are filling up. Just stop by one on a Saturday afternoon and you'll find everyone standing in line, even the kids. They want to see Santa, and they're waiting with excitement and glee, just like you and I did when we were their age. But we're not kids anymore, most of the time anyway—so no more waiting to see Santa. We're all grown up now.

But ever since we were babies, we've heard over and over again that Christmastime is Christ's birthday. So why don't we see more about Him? Why aren't kids asking—where's the line to see Jesus? It's because we've led them to believe more in Santa Clause than in Christ.

So kids won't find anything about Him at any store, nor will many even innocently ask about Jesus, even though He gave His life for them. All that matters in their little minds is that Santa brings them presents, not Jesus.

Some day we will all pass from this earth. In the blink of an eye, at the sound of His trumpet, we'll stand in line at His throne. Then every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, though it will be too late for many.

But what about you—right here and now? Do you want to see Jesus? Do you really believe in your heart of hearts that He died for you personally? Is that such an overwhelming thought to ponder and meditate upon, so profound, that your eyes fill up with tears at times? It should be—if you truly believe that He died in your place.

The Bible makes it clear that all of us are headed down one of two paths that lead to one of two outcomes, two distinctly different outcomes, and only two:

1) One path is the broad way, and many people go down that path. It leads to destruction.
2) The other path is the narrow way, and few people go down that path. It leads to eternal life.

Christ (foretelling of the day we come before Him in judgment) said in Matthew 7:21-23—Not everyone who calls Him Lord is going to enter the kingdom of heaven, but only those who do the will of His Father. He goes on to say that many people will make great claims of doing all kinds of miraculous things in His name, and yet He will declare to them that He never knew them, and for them to depart from Him.

He is speaking of those who went down the broad path to destruction, though they thought they were going down the narrow path to life—something to think about.

It's Christmastime, and all the kids are standing in line to see Santa, and that's OK.

But—where's the line to see Jesus?
