Let’s focus on Jesus, not Santa Claus

If Jesus is the reason for the season, why are we parading Santa Claus?

In John 10:17, it says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me.”

We should call him, by His name that is Jesus Christ. The name that’s above all names.

The Bible in 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways them I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins, and heal their land.”

We need to be healed, because love is gone.

In our churches, homes, schools and in our children we are all broken and we need to be healed only by the power of God, through his son, Jesus.

We should call Him by His name Jesus and not Christmas or X-Mas.

If we call Him by that name, maybe our land, our children, our homes, our churches and our schools may be healed.

Step back and let us parade Jesus.

His promises are true, His love is real.

Respect that name and honor it.

My God bless this season in the name of Jesus.
