Verse of the Day
Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. [Isaiah 7:14 – NKJV]
The Old Testament is strewn with references to Jesus’ birth, His life, and His death from the first book to the last. The messianic prophesy is very compelling. It really is hard for us as mere mortals to grasp or comprehend the fact that God came to earth to live with us. Just imagine Immanuel, God with us! And He wasn’t just with us, He was one of us! Amazing, isn’t it?
And so this Advent season as we prepare our hearts for the birth of our Lord, let’s never forget that He came to earth to live with us. O come, o come, Immanuel!
