Show Notes

Tis the season to return to Jesus! Christmas should never just be a season where we focus so much on the birth of Christ that we forget He is no longer a baby. It's easy to put baby Jesus in the manger and step back and go on with our holiday madness. Jesus wants us to draw near to Him--and He's quite capable of carrying our burdens if we're willing to hand them over. But it requires a return--we must come back to Him.  Naomi struggled through the loss of her husband and sons after their move to Moab. Now she's chosen to uproot again and return to Bethlehem to face family and friends with the news of her troubles, and try to scrape together some sort of life as a poor widow. And yet, she is not alone, as Ruth vows not to leave her! How comforting it is to have friends along on a rough journey! When we return to Jesus, to Him as our Bethlehem, our House of Bread, we are coming back to fellowship with His word and Holy Spirit and especially with His Body, our brothers and sisters in Christ. No matter where you're at or what you are walking through, you are not alone. We are all following Jesus together... "till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ." -Ephesians 4:13
