Jesus - God With Us


In foretelling the birth of Jesus, the prophet Isaiah wrote. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The 'mighty God,' The everlasting 'Father,' The Prince of Peace.”

Colossians 1:15 describes Jesus as "the image of the 'invisible' God." Indeed, the Creator, God Almighty, had revealed himself in flesh, coming to live among his creation. Not so he could better know us, but so we could better know him. Not so he could feel our pain, but so we could know that he felt ours. And not to condemn us for our sins, but to redeem us once and for all. What a glorious gift to mankind!

I hope you and yours have a merry Christmas filled with love, peace and good will.
