“God with us”: Our Hope from a Child

 

 

 

 

 

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son,                                  and they will call him Immanuel”                                                           (which means ‘God with us’).   Matthew 1:23

“Today in the town of David a Savior                                                             has been born to you;   He is the Messiah,                                                 the Lord.” (Luke 2:11)

********************************************

The baby’s eyes reflect the Light,

Conceived to serve mankind,

Little hands and feet will grow

To endure the pain of nails.

A savior born to redeem must die.

Can it be that one so small

Bears such a weight as this.

The child, the man, the Son–as One,

Carrying the burden of promise-

At the Manger, the Garden, the Cross;

Compassion, redemption, salvation.

A cry at birth, a cry at death.

Can it be that one so small

Bears such a weight as this.

The Reason to Rejoice this Season—and all Seasons

“Then the shepherds returned, glorifying God and praising God for

all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.”

(Luke 2:20)

As it has been told to us through the Word, let us rejoice in the birth

of Jesus and the fulfillment of the prophecy that led to our salvation.
