God with US

” …… and they will call him Emmanuel” – which means, “God with us” ~ Matthew 1:23

Merry Christmas

Christmas reminds us of the fact that God is with us, so that our imperfect love may be purified.  Christmas teaches us the truth of self-sacrificing love.  Christ came to his own property and his people rejected Him.  (Even, today – this happens).  Nevertheless, He gave everyone who accepted Him the right to become children of God.

There was no room for Him in the inn.  He guarantees every one who loves Him and follows Him a place in the house of his Father.

He was despised and deserted by people.  Still, He invites everyone who is exhausted and burdened to find rest with Him.  He had the power to come down from the cross and destroy everyone who mocked Him.  But, He died on the cross for all our sins.  The vengeful world begrudged Him his life, but He lovingly and mercifully promises eternal life to everyone who believes in Him.

THIS is the language of Emmanual – God with US!

There is so much loveless and hatred in today’s world.  It sours the relationship between man and God, and between man and man.  But, Christmas repeatedly tells us that love will triumph.  Because God is love He sent us His Son.  If God loves us so much, we must also love one another.  Let us profess our love ANEW this Christmas: to God, to our parents, to our marriage partner and to our fellow ma.  Then, Christmas, will truly become a Christ-feast.
