Santa Clause, Tooth Fairy, The Easter Bunny. Remember when you believed that they were all real? Do you remember that feeling, that trust you had in them. That Santa would deliver all your presents, the tooth fairy would leave you money in exchange for your tooth and that the Easter Bunny would hide eggs for you to find on that special day. What if we could go back and get that feeling? That trust? That faith?
Well I have good news. You can. But this time its REAL!!!! His name is Jesus.… And He really exists.
See sometimes as adults we try to hard to do things “right” and to make sure we “totally” understand what is being said to us. But what if we could be a kid again. To have faith in Jesus without making it complicated. To just believe and trust Him. To know that He died to free us and will come back again. Think back to the excitement you had on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa to come. That is the excitement we NEED to have while we wait for Jesus to come.
Today I am challenging all of us to be a kid again. To get excited for Jesus return. And to get excited for what God is doing in us until that day comes. Just like you did as a child, shouting out “Santa is coming, Santa is coming” I want you to shout out to the world “JESUS IS COMING, JESUS IS COMING.” Lets find that kid in us and lets get excited 🙂
Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
—1 John 3:2
