You’ll shoot your eye out.”

Remember, the movie The Christmas Story. No, not the original, the one with “Ralphie” and the gang.

Ralphie, wanted a “Red Ryder” BB gun for his Christmas present. He wanted it so bad that it became the “substance” and “evidence” of his dreams.

He dreamed of being able to right wrongs and save the west through the power of his “Red Ryder” BB gun.

This is the picture of Faith. Everyone on this earth has faith in someone or something. The difference in the faiths is what the someone or something is capable of doing.

Ralphie’s BB gun was never going to accomplish all a nine-year-old boy could dream of. So also is the faith most have in people, places and or things.

But thanks be to God His son can and has accomplished all He has promised.


Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.
