I know I wrote about this same topic just over a week ago, however I cannot get over the amazing truth of Jesus being Emmanuel.
This is a truth that I find absolutely astounding.
We know that Jesus is God.
We know that Jesus was the agent of creation; God created everything through Jesus (Hebrews 1 v 3 and Colossians 1 v 16).
We know that Jesus was pre-existent as part of the Godhead (Revelation 1 v 8).
Yet we also know that Jesus was made flesh and dwelt among us (John 1 v 14).
We know that Jesus came among those He created, even though most would reject him (John 1 v 11).
We know that He would live a life of ministry before giving up His life to deal with all our sin, to make it possible for us to be saved and made righteous.
This is of course a truth that we focus on at this time of year.
However this amazing truth is like a puppy; it is not just for Christmas!
Our God became our Saviour by coming to earth in the flesh.
What’s even better is that we can all say, My God became My Saviour by coming to the earth in flesh for me.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that Jesus came to earth as Emmanuel, to become God with us”.
Matthew 1 v 23…..Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us
