Jesus, not Santa, is Watching You

Has the thought sufficiently gripped my mind and begun to dominate my every action, producing the quality of transparency in my life?
– Sinclair Ferguson, In Christ Alone

During this Christmas season, we sing about Santa watching us to find out whether we are naughty or nice.  Let us remember that Jesus is always watching us.  That’s not a cause to be afraid.  It should cause us to humbly bow before him, his omniscience, and marvel at his word, which judges and discerns the intentions of our hearts (Heb. 4:15-16).
