This is the time of year we mark with celebrations of the birth of Jesus. When the angel came to Joseph, he was told that Mary would give birth to a son and they were to name him Jesus, which means “The Lord saves” and then proceeds to tell Joseph that this fulfills the prophecy from Isaiah 7. So here we have two names for Jesus, his given name meaning “the Lord saves” and one of the titles that he will be known as, Immanuel, “God is with us”
When God is with us, who can come against us. Many will try, but the Lord saves us.
The Lord saves us from our sins, because God is with us.
The Lord comforts those in need. How? Well God is with them.
The Lord uses circumstances to teach us, to help us grow. When? Always, since God is with us.
The Lord gives us freedom when we walk with him. How? Well, because God is with us!
Remember this time of year that God is with us, always, that’s the promise that Jesus gives us.
