WHY JESUS IS BETTER THAN SANTA

I heard this at Church today, I don’t know who the author is, but I wanted to share this piece. It beautifully expresses the eternal and all loving qualities of Jesus. Whilst Santa is fun and festive, Jesus is our Saviour and Friend. What he has to offer cannot be wrapped in Christmas paper, nor can it be discarded once the novelty has worn off. It can’t be bought on credit, lay-byed or returned and refunded. Because if we accept His gift, it is forever, it is a gift that compares to no other, it is priceless.
Why Jesus is Better Than Santa Claus
Santa lives at the North Pole…
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh…
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.
Santa comes but once a year…
JESUS is an ever present help.
Santa fills your stockings with goodies…
JESUS supplies all your needs.
Santa comes down your chimney uninvited…
JESUS stands at your door and knocks, and then enters your heart when invited.
You have to wait in line to see Santa…
JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.
Santa lets you sit on his lap…
JESUS lets you rest in His arms.
Santa doesn’t know your name, all he can say is “Hi little boy or girl, what’s your name?”…
JESUS knew our name before we were born. Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too. He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our heads.
Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly…
JESUS has a heart full of love
All Santa can offer is HO HO HO…
JESUS offers health, help and hope.
Santa says “You better not cry”…
JESUS says “Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.”
Santa’s little helpers make toys…
JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes and builds mansions.
Santa may make you chuckle but…
JESUS gives you joy that is your strength.
While Santa puts gifts under your tree…
JESUS became our gift and died on a tree…the cross.
We need to put Christ back in CHRISTmas, Jesus is still the reason for the season.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

  3. What a wonderful post!!! It’s classic and I saved it to show my husband. It’ll always be useful during future Adult Education classes to put into persceptive our thoughts on the season. Great job!

  4. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT. There really is no comparison.
