Immanuel - God with us.


"God with us"- perhaps the three most powerful words in this sin-marred world.  The Word left all of the glory, splendor, majesty and perfection of His rightful place in glory with the Trinity of Father and Holy Spirit and took on the vulnerability of human flesh.  He left the sinless atmosphere of heaven and entered into the sin-filled atmosphere of this earth.  He left His home that knows no sickness or sadness to make His home in our world of sorrow, disease and death.  He left the perfect unity, fellowship and love of the Trinity, and the unending loyalty and worship of the heavenly host, to be touched by the disunity, strife, hatred and betrayal of those He loves and came to save. He Who knew no sin, became sin for us, so that we might become endued with the righteousness of God.  He, fully Son of God, became also fully Son of Man in order to save us. He, the one Whom we all too often sin against, is ever loyal, faithful and present with us.  Immanuel, God with us,  promises to never fail us, give us up,  leave us without support, leave us helpless,  forsake us, let us down or let go of us.  Immanuel - God with us. It's more than just a name or a title for Jesus Christ. It's His proven, tested, tried and true promise to us.
