God With Us
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us). Matthew 1:22-23
Let us consider everything God did in order to fulfill the promise of the virgin birth of His Son Jesus Christ, Immanuel. First, God revealed His plans to some of His trusted children who would share it with others hundreds of years before it would happen. Next, He chose a faithful family and sent angels to prepare them with His plans. And last but not least, Jesus Christ is born in a manger and God is with us.
God took great care to deliver Jesus to us and He is not afraid to go to great lengths or do the impossible to prove His faithfulness or love to you. The Christmas story is not just about a baby in a manger laying down His sweet head. The Christmas story is about God’s sincere devotion of fulfilling every promise of loving you forever. God is love and the virgin birth of Jesus Christ is only the beginning of the greatest love story of all time.
Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 2: 1-20
