“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us). -- Matthew 1:23 
Emmanuel: God with us.

That's a pretty mind-blowing concept if you really think about it. That the God of the universe would come to be with us. That the creator of all things would choose to live amongst the created. That the one true deity would put on humanity. Why?
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. -- Romans 5:8
Not because of anything we have done, but because God loves us! Even in our sin and filth, he decided to send His son to be among us... God with us. This is love. This is Christmas.

Take a listen:

  1. God with us ... Yes, amazing! He is so loving and forgiving to me... to all of us. We fail and He picks us up! He is SO patient. He never gives up on us! This is indeed Christmas! And we can have Christmas every day as we walk with Jesus! Blessings and Love to you! PS This comes up as momma, but really it's Nana! :)
