Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14
Immanuel means “God with us.” Had Jesus not chosen to be with us, salvaton would not be ours today. Yet he humbled Himself to the point of life on this earth and death on the cross . . . and all so He could be forever in us and for us (Philippians 2:8). What an honor it is to be loved by a God who will never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6).
