I remember the first time I wore a Santa outfit & driving our white van in busy traffic in Houston Texas. Suddenly, someone sped by me in a fast Ferrari. A police car just happen to be there, pulled him over & began writing him a ticket. As I slowly drove by and rolled down my window, I called out to the police officer in my deep baritone voice, “Merry Christmas“.
Stunned to see Santa Clause, the officer burst out laughing, put away his ticket book, and let the guilty go free!
The grace of God is summed up in that great phrase, “Merry Christmas.”
“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21
