‘Where’s the Line to See Jesus’ writer feels like ‘a messenger from God’


Steve Haupt’s daughter Becky Kelley recorded “Where’s the Line to See Jesus.”

New on The Christian Chronicle’s website, the Church of Christ elder who wrote the Christmas song “Where’s the Line to See Jesus” talks about the experience:

Haupt said he first felt flattered that people liked the song and then excited that it could be a hit.
“That’s evolved into being humbled that God would give me a message like this that’s affected so many people,” he told The Christian Chronicle. “I feel like just a messenger from God. What are the odds of my grandson saying it, my daughter relaying it to me and then me writing a song about it?”

Read the full story and see the video.
As the Chronicle reported in an earlier blog post, the song has gone viral on YouTube. It’s near 1.6 million views — and counting.

    “Where’s The Line To See Jesus” is just so appropriate in so many ways, especially during this Christmas season. No wonder it is going VIRAL! What a wonderful song, voice and lyrics! Thanks you guys may God bless any of us that dare step out in faith Jesus as our Lord!

    I’m so impressed at the professionalism of the video. I’d like to know more about how Becky came to sing it and how it was recorded so professionally. Is Steve Haupt in the recording business?

    Personally I don’t beleive that God would give Brother Haupt a message
    to write a song to do with christmas when God never was in christmas
    to begin with. We all know that christmas originated from paganism. We
    are to be seperate from the world, so by excepting the song that Brother Haupt wrote to do with christmas, we are no better than the world.

    I loved this song and felt it did reach so many people and had a wonderful impact on so many to make them really think about Jesus when maybe they would not have otherwise. I don’t know where Christmas was started from, maybe from paganism, but so what. If it is a good thing to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, it doesn’t matter how it came about, we celebrate for a good reason. Why can’t we take this time of year when people think about Jesus and build upon that. I was raised that it was wrong to celebrate Christ’s birth at Christmas. I am now up in my 60’s and have only for a few years matured enough to realize that this is something that we should celebrate as Christians. The birth of our Savior. We should celebrate it all year round but I feel is is wonderful to celebrate it at the Christmas season. I feel that we have always prayed for God’s guidance and to show is the way, to lead us and to speak to us. Then when God does speak to us as Mr. Haupt felt He did to him with this song, some of us are afraid to give God the credit. I uses to be like that. I praise God that I can feel Him and His presence now.
