Immanuel--God is with Us

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call Him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

In one week we'll celebrate Jesus' birthday.

We celebrate that "God is with us" and that our heavenly Father kept His promise to send a savior to the world. That savior came in the form of His only Son, the Christ Child, Jesus, who grew up to take all our sins with Him when He died on the cross on Calvary.

What is the reason for this season? We needed God's gift of salvation! We can't save ourselves from the sins we do every day. We're helpless and hopeless. But Immanuel brings us hope, joy, salvation, and the promise of heaven when we die.

God is with us today and speaks to us through His Word. Jesus, the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy, is the living Word, and He is with us always.

He is God's greatest gift to us all! Thank You, God.
Christmas blessings of love, peace, hope, and joy to one and all.
