VerseD: Isaiah 7:14

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Isaiah 7:14, ESV

God gave us the ultimate sign of His being and love and grace: He sent His Son, God in the flesh, to be with us.

VerseD: Matthew 5:16

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16, ESV

Emmanuel – God with us – showed us the way to live and love others, that we may manifest the Lord through our actions toward and for others.

VerseD: John 1:14

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14, ESV

Our God is not aloof and uncaring. He sees our struggles, came and experienced this life, and revealed the truth of our situation with love and grace.

Jesus can be trusted and loved.

VerseD: Matthew 18:20

“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
Matthew 18:20, ESV

The context is church discipline, calling out sin in hopes of repentance from a wayward brother or sister.

Is that not also why we share the gospel?

VerseD: John 1:14

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 ESV

To know Jesus is to know truth and find all grace. He came to us, and His life, death, and resurrection prove the truthfulness of the Bible and that God desires loving relationship with us.

If you look for Me at Christmas

Bless yourself with some wisdom from Proverbial Thought!

This is just a small break from my favorite Christmas carols as I share this interesting item.

I am not really sure where this came from.

This was e-mailed to me about two years ago, and I saved the picture. I share it with you now.

May we remember this Christmas season, in all of the hustle and bustle, in all of the craziness that life brings (regardless of the season), in all of the things that are wrong in this world, that Christ came into this world as a baby, but He saved this world through His death on the cross. May we remember that He rose to life again, and one day He will return to redeem us!

May we remember that He has not left us alone in the mean time!

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20b)
