O Come Emmanuel

December 25, 2014

Emmanuel is “God with us” according to the Bible book of Matthew (1:23).  The author of the book of John explains it this way, “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son…” (3:16)

The Apostle Paul asks, “If God be for us, who can be against us?”  (Romans 8:31)

If God loves us so much that He is with us and for us, what can come between Him and us?  Nothing.

The Christ is that perpetual promise – that nothing can come between God and us – for the Christ is the “mediator between God and men.” (1 Tim 2:5)

That means Christmas is every day – because God and His Christ are every day – divine Love is every day.

O Come Emmanuel.  God is indeed with us.
