Christmas Devotional: God With Us
In today's Christmas devotional, Emily takes us through what she loves about the Christmas Story - how God came to be with us, 'Immanuel'.
"All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 'The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel' - which means, 'God with us.'"
God is so powerful and strong yet he sent his own son into the world through a normal girl called Mary. God works in unexpected ways; we never know what he is going to do next. He is outside of our understanding.
Immanuel means ‘God with us.’ This is amazing; we can have a relationship with the king of the world. Everyone can have a relationship with him. God is with us through all of life.
There is a song I used to sing at Sunday club, it says ‘sometimes good things happen God is there, sometimes bad things happen God is there too’. God is always with us. We can remember this by reading the Bible and listening to Christian music, and it is amazing to have Christian friends who we can chat to and encourage each other.
