'Christmas in July' Week: God With Us

So I know it's not actually Christmas-time, but this is something that is good to reflect on all year long: the incarnation of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 1:23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

Isaiah 9:6 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.

A whole host of verses beautifully illustrate how God the Father used God the Son to complete this awesome and wonderful plan called life. He has created all things and executed all things through the Son, Yeshua, Jesus. Jesus came to earth to save all mankind. God emptied Himself to be our salvation.

It is just amazing to think about how awe inspiring it all is. Each time I open up my bible I am blown away at Him and His glory, at His power and His love. In the words of Tiny Tim, "God bless us, everyone." He truly has!
