I have heard it said many times over, "One can not know God, He is distant." This is not true. A little over 2,000 years ago the most wonderful thing happened, God became a man in the person of Jesus. While He was in heaven, He choose to come and dwell among us. He could have been born in a rich castle, yet picked a manger. He came not to be served, but to serve...us. His time was short, yet He changed the lives of millions of people, even to this day. Christmas is a whole lot more than jingle bells, Christmas lights, presents and a big dinner; but God became a man. Yes, enjoy all the good things of this season, just remember the One we truly celebrate.
I pray that each of my readers have a Merry Christmas and may God's blessings be upon you. Thank you for visiting my blog.
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.7
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
(Isaiah 9:6-7 NKJV)
“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son,
and they shall call His name Immanuel,”
which is translated, “God with us.”
(Matthew 1:23 NKJV)
(Also see Isaiah 7:14)
