What do you believe in? Reindeer and Santa? What about Frosty and the Grinch? For all the stories and fairy tales of this commercialized season, is there any room left for Jesus? Jesus is the object of your real faith.
A couple weeks ago I was reminded of just how many stars there are in the sky on a camping trip with the Youth Group. God’s promise to Abraham was that his descendants would be as many as the stars.

How did you do in school? Were you a straight A student? If the Old Testament Law of Moses could give out grades to the world, every one would fail! Why then would anyone want to go back to school after Jesus has freed us from the Law?! By faith in Jesus we are perfect and forgiven.
