God with us // 04-12-20

“All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).” Isaiah‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

So many people seem to think that God is against them, or distant from them, and yet we have this annual reminder at Christmas that He came to us, born to dwell with us, to suffer and die for us, so that we might know His incredible loves for us and that He IS for us! This is what was promised, this is what happened, and this is what we can experience because of Jesus!! Life makes much more sense when you know that God is with you!

O holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord, Immanuel
