God with us

The prophet Isaiah told us about His coming (7:14): …the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Whose name means, “God with us.”

And so it is today, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus who became the Christ. Not just a great rabbi, a great teacher. He was God’s only Son. And fully divine Himself; present at the creation. As we are told by Paul in his letter to the Colossians (1:19): For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.

A virgin. A son. The Son.

Merry Christmas to all.
