“God with us” Matthew 1:23
The announcement of the birth of Jesus, God in flesh, was good news!
“God for us” Romans 8:31-39
That God is for us is better news!
“God in us” Colossians 1:26-28
The hope of future glory!
We celebrate the coming of God in flesh, to live a life of perfect obedience before the Father. To fulfill every demand of God’s holy law, FOR US! Jesus offered his own body as a sacrifice for our sins. He died FOR US! And now everyone who believes the record of God about His Son and surrenders to his Lordship can know God is in us! His dwelling in His people is His promise that we, like him, will be raised from the grave to live forever with Him.
How could we who know him not gladly celebrate his incarnation? Joyfully we say to all, Merry Christmas!
