God with Us!!
The past couple weeks we have contemplated the glorious reality of Immanuel … “God with us.”
Before we rush in to our week and rush past this wonderful gift, I invite you to pause once more to consider…
THE VASTNESS OF GOD: “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Have you given orders to the morning or shown the dawn its place? Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades? Can you loose the cords of Orion?” Job Chapter 38
THE MAJESTY OF GOD: “I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and among the lampstands was someone like to the Son of Man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow and his eyes were like blazing fire…” Revelation Chapter 1
THE HUMILIATION OF GOD: “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke Chapter 2
“It was now about the sixth hour and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my Spirit.’ When he had said this, he breathed his last.” Luke Chapter 23
John 1:11 tells us that Jesus the “Word” make flesh came to his own; to his chosen people, but his people did not receive him.
What about you? Will you receive Jesus your brother today? He is knocking right now, do you hear it? Will you let him in?
