This time of year, the word “believe” is everywhere — on sweatshirts, ornaments, plaques — what have you.  To me, this one word, standing alone, begs the question:  “Believe what?”

Should we believe in Santa, flying reindeer, or as some say, the “magic” of Christmas?  I think I have it.  Let’s believe this:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”  (John 3:16).

And let’s rejoice at this:

“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).

Beats any magic I ever witnessed!
