God came down, down here where we live, and he is still here. One of the prophetic names of Jesus was Immanuel, “God with us”.
He came to save his people from their sins, Jesus. He is still here, Christ in you the hope of glory.
He said to his friends, “When I go away I will not leave you as orphans” “I will send the Comforter” and he did. For some reason I can’t quite explain I am comforted knowing my wife is in the other end of the house. As in the way a child is comforted by the presence of his mother.
I have, we have, you have, a constant companion who will not ever leave you or forsake you. Oh, you might not know he is near but he is. Run away will you? Even if you hide in hell he is still there.
Embrace him, love him, say something to him….he loves you so.
Christmas is when we celebrate “God with us”. It is when God became one of us to redeem us, to make us his own. Celebrate his presence, be comforted by knowing he is here. Trust him, acknowledge him, walk with him,…he is here.
I get SO irritated by the comments on facebook etc about how “we” need God back in America… I commented once that I didn’t know he had left the USA.
Great point Wendy. Thanks for stopping by.
And I am so glad He is. Love the “effects” as well. God bless
