Santa vs Jesus


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. 

You have to stand 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 did. 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 the tree.  


It’s obvious there is really no comparison. 
We need to remember WHO Christmas is all about. 
We need to put Christ back in Christmas. 
Jesus is still the reason for the season. 
Yes, Jesus is better, he is even better than Santa Claus!


Love in my Master’s Name;
