John Piper and Max Lucado on Santa Claus

In the last week I have encountered a convicting audio message by John Piper and an equally convicting Christmas devotional message by Max Lucado … both addressing the topic of Santa Claus.  If you read the blog, you know what my beliefs and convictions are on this topic.

First, John Piper offers a brief but very convicting six minute audio message on SoundCloud.com titled “Santa Claus: Harmless fun or Christmas disruption?”  You can listen to it here.

Second, Max Lucado offers his written insights in this devotion distributed by faithgateway.com titled “The North Pole or the Manger?”  While not quite as convicting as the John Piper message, it is nevertheless quite insightful.  You can read this devotional here:

Consider and be convicted …

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
