For most of us, Christmas is full of joy and celebration. However, for others it can be a hard and difficult time. In the Christmas classic “It’s A Wonderful Life” George Bailey questions what good his life is and does not view his life as wonderful. Maybe you are struggling to find the wonderful in Christmas this year or in your life right now.

What does the word “believe” mean to you? Is it just an idea that makes sense in your mind, so you say you believe it? Does what you believe really change how you live? What does it mean to believe in Jesus and how does one do that?

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer used his nose to light the way through the fog for Santa on Christmas Eve, but Santa had to follow Rudolph’s nose to make it through the fog. In Matthew’s gospel we read about magi from the East who follow a star to find Jesus. All of us follow something, but have you ever thought about what you follow? How do you know what you are following will get you where you want to go?

The Christmas season has begun and with it all the movies that we love to watch. One of my favorites was “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. The Grinch was a mean one because his heart was two sizes too small. Even today the heart of the problem is the problem of the heart. But can our heart change, and if so, how does that happen? The good news is the Bible has an answer for the problem of our heart.
