A Ray of Hope

A Ray of Hope

Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why…Santa Claus is coming to town. He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake, he knows when you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake. It’s a fun sounding song, but somehow we apply it to our relationship with God. Maybe we think God has a “nice” list and a “naughty” list and rewards those on the “nice” side. Whatever it is, we mix our santa-ology with our theology. When we think about God with a Santa mentality, we remove the heart of the gospel. As we continue the series “A Christmas Story” we see that God has a different plan to save “naughty” people. His plan brings a ray of hope into an otherwise gloomy situation of Naomi and Ruth. Listen to Pastor Rob expound on Ruth chapter 2 and hear how God always works to fulfill his mission to save the world…
