Do you ever wonder what the Christmas season would be like if there was no story of Santa Clause? What would people talk about? How might people view the season? This blog is not meant to discredit the fun idea of a fictional character in a red suit who makes children happy once a year by giving them presents for being good. I am simply inquiring how the season might be different if  Santa had not intruded on the story of the Christ child.

Among people that do not believe in Jesus there would not be anything to celebrate because Jesus is not considered real. Among those who are Christian in name only there would be the celebration of the Jesus they do not know. “This is eternal life”, Jesus said, “that they might know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” (John 17:3)

Among solid and true believing, repenting, and worshiping Christians there would be only one priority, one person to talk about, and only one person to tell stories about – The Lord Jesus Christ. Every story told would be about the miracle of the son of God.

Christmas eve would not be spent wondering about the coming of Santa but about the birth of the baby Jesus. The focus of Christmas would only be about the man that the baby Jesus became, the life He lived, the death He died, and the resurrection He accomplished.

Alright, so maybe Christmas would be lost as a holiday in our present secular society. Maybe we just love to substitute the true for the false, like artificial foods, true stories for fake exaggerations, the true God for idols, and the Christ of Christmas for a jolly elf.

In any case, how you spend your Christmas is your business, but I hope you won’t miss out on what would otherwise be a good chance to glorify God without compromise or needless distractions.

About Joe Durso

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
