Is the elf on the shelf mixing up the message of Christmas and confusing kids about the gospel? What is the difference between the message of Santa and his elves and the message of the gospel? Mild-mannered and shy, one stern look was all it took to send me to my room sobbing hot tears of penitent shame. My brothers, on the other hand, were much less mild-mannered.

My kids and I sat down to watch the movie Elf recently. Despite having watched this movie many times, we found ourselves laughing, enjoying every silly line from a movie that quickly became a classic Christmas favorite. My oldest child is abnormally tall…especially for my family. The doctor even referred to him as a mutant. We use him relentlessly for tasks like changing air filters and reaching things on the top shelves. As the elves try to convince Buddy he has amazing talents, like changing the batteries in smoke detectors, we all looked at Blake and just belly-laughed. We finally have an explanation for him! We learned much about my son while watching Elf this year, but I also began to contemplate what Buddy could teach us about life. Does Buddy have some secrets to enjoying Christmas, to living the Christian life? You simply lift your voice and make a joyful sound.

Lessons from Elf. Sermon Tone Analysis. Over the years we have watched the emotional, nostalgic and transforming stories that help us to look deep within to discover ourselves and what truly matters. Its A Wonderul Life - brings the discovery of the impact each life makes regardless of how much wealth one possesses. A Christmas Carol - reminds us to be kind to our fellow man, and to have a heart that is soft and loving toward our fellow man. Home Alone - reminds us to check our kids before we leave for vacation. There are really some great discoveries in this story that parallel some truths in Scripture. The story progresses to show Buddy the Elf as he sets out to discover where he came from and who he truly is!!!! Who Am I? It seems like the struggle to figure out who we are, what do we identify with has grown from inclusions in the rebel group to now changing genders, adapting unnatural sexual behavior and other extremes
Belonging is the central theme of the movie "Elf". Early on in the movie and in the elves' lives they are taught the Code of the Elves. First, bring all of the excitement of Christmas to every day with all of the wonderment, joy, hope, and expectancy of God reconciling the world to Himself. Code 1 reminds us that we can be excited every day because as Christians, we belong to God and can never be separated. Code 3 is all about evangelism - sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through song. For Christians, belonging is the central theme of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus came so we would know we belong with God and anything that might be in the way of that he will remove. Once we were alone, isolated - now we are loved, together. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
