Matthew 1:22, 23 - MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Matthew 1:22, 23: MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Matthew 1:22, 23 (NKJV) So all this was done that it might be
fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:
"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall
call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us."
Wow! The Creator came to dwell with His creation. The
all-knowing One came to teach teachers and students limited by their lack of
knowledge and understanding. The ever-present One came to comfort hurting
people stuck in their suffering. The all-powerful One came to serve
weak people, empowering them with His Spirit. The Almighty sent His
only son Jesus into the world, fully God and fully man. Yes, the Word
God is with us to face down our fears by faith. God is with
us in our doubts. God is with us in our hurts, applying His healing
balm of grace. God is with us in our transitions to grow our trust in
Him. God is with us at work and at home. God is with us in our
uncertainty. God is with us when we feel His presence and when we don't feel
Him near. God is with us in our successes and in our failures. God
is with us and for us for His glory!
"And surely I [Jesus] am with you always, to the very end of
the age. (Matthew 28:20 NIV)
God is with us in our modern technology and our antiquated
activities. The Lord is with us in our big cities and our small towns. Jesus
is with us when we feel joy, laughter and loss. Christ is with us
to comfort us in our pain and encourage us to persevere for Him. He
is with us in the ups and the downs. He is with us and He is in us
to work through us!
Therefore, because Christ is with you, you can be confident
of His wisdom and direction. Fools flounder for lack of faith, but
you have the Faithful One as the facilitator of your circumstances.
Immanuel entered the earth by birth and entered your heart by new birth.
Your Savior Jesus has saved you from your sins and your Lord Jesus
commands you to follow His ways and experience His life. He gave His life
and came to life for your life! by Boyd Bailey.
