"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel,
which means, "God with us."
I wonder what it would have been like to have been there long ago on that quiet, starlit night when the Word became flesh and the Savior of the world was born. What would I have felt, what would I have done, in the presence of the One who left the glory of heaven to dwell among us, to be with us?
He was and is with us.
"God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love... not that we loved God, but that he loved us
and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins."
~1 John 4:9-10
"Be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."
