“Excited to continue our celebration of Immanuel, God with us, in the morning with my family. I have found the past month to be so rich with moments to teach my little guys about Jesus, what happened at Christmas, and what that means for us in our lives today. Jesus meets our deepest need (reconciliation with God) and takes care of our greatest problem (our personal sin). Thank you, Jesus!”
I could find no better words than these from our daughter, Abigail. I especially like the way that she shares that it is an ongoing conversation about Jesus, Immanuel, God with us.
What a joy it is for us as grandparents to celebrate with our children and grandchildren the true meaning and purpose of Christmas. May God’s love, peace and joy fill you this Christmas season. Keep the celebration going.
Isaiah 7:14 – prophecy
14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
Matthew 1:22-23 –
22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him ” Immanuel”[ (which means “God with us”).
