I hear yesterday’s post was too short to be counted as an official blog post…well, (Diche) *sticking out my tongue* I said I was doing a 30 day blog post challenge not a 30 day LONG blog post challenge. So it’s still very valid. Hehehehe…
So today I had a flashback. I had a Christmas-as-a-little-girl-moment. I remembered what Christmas was like growing up. I still remember my dad coming home with hampers and of course we always went after the sweets and the chocolates. Then December 24th was santa day. We a went to illupeju supermarket back then to catch a glimpse of this robust, jolly man in a red suit with lots of goodies in a bag.
It’s funny that santa has survived so many generations and we have somehow made Christmas about him. I’m not here to burst anyone’s bubble in fact I’m all for santa even if it’s just for the Christmas presents 😉
What I’m against is the fact that we are slowly easing Christ Out of Christmas. Amazingly I was just thinking about it today, even his style of operation is opposite of the bible’s.
Santa only gives you gifts if you have been good. If by any chance you end up on the naughty List
it’s the end of presents
. So you have to deserve it. If not you won’t like what you will get if anything
Thank God our God is not some old man in a red santa suit. He is a God who while we were yet sinners, died for us. He knows we can never stay off the naughty list so we still get gifts all year round irrespective.
With Him we don’t have to be perfect. He is our tsikenu (our righteousness)
Christmas is so much much better because I know it’s not about Santa, it’s about Jesus.
He’s the reason for the season.
But while we are still playing pretend Christmas is about santa, then dear santa this is my list….
But hey, we all know…my help comes from the Lord…so I’m in absolute faith for my Last Minute Miracles and many more testimonies…and any other thing you can throw in Lord 🙂
Okay guys good night
I’m sooooo sleepy…
It’s day 22
