A few different friends have been sending me this video from YouTube. It’s a new Christmas song that has a lot of appeal. It tells the story of shopping one Christmas when a young boy asks, “Where’s the line to see Jesus?” That simple statement points out a profound truth about the holiday season. Jesus should be the real attraction. Advent and Christmas should be a time when we get excited about our Savior.
I may show this video clip in my children’s church this Christmas season. Here are a few discussion questions to debrief once the kids watch it.
- What story does this song talk about?
- Why do you think it’s easier to get excited about Santa?
- If you could visit with Jesus face-to-face, what would you tell him?
- If you had to name a place, Where’s is the Line to See Jesus?
