As you can see, this illustration I created features Santa and one of his reindeer collecting donations for the Salvation Army, which is a wonderful organization. They feed and clothe the needy, provide emergency assistance and help many overcome their addictions. And most importantly, they point people to Jesus Christ, whose birth we celebrate this time of year. God came to earth in the form of His Son to die on a cross and rise from the dead, so that all who humbly come to Him and repent of their sins will be forgiven and have a relationship with God. Paul wrote, "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8). That is the good news of Christmas!
