“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” John 1:14
What good news this second Sunday of Advent brings! Not only was Jesus born to save us from our sins, but He lived among the people of His day; and He still lives among us! In fact, His name was called Immanuel, which means “God with us”. (Paraphrased Isaiah 7:14)
As children of God we have Jesus living in our hearts. He goes with us throughout our daily activities. He shields us from harm, blesses us in more ways than we know and He gives us guidance and help throughout our lives.
What a blessing to know that Emmanuel will never leave us!
