“Emmanuel” God is with us
Today is born our Savior, Christ the Lord.
Jesus is born! The Savior, the Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, and Son of God is born!!! Imagine, Jesus, the Son of God and our Savior born in a stable and placed in a manger! God comes to us in humility, silently and peacefully, without causing a great disturbance.
But beyond the setting, and the sentiment, there is a truth here that strikes at the heart of every believing Christian – that truth that defines Christmas. It is there, in the middle of the gospel, in the very first words that are spoken.
