[If you have a printed Bible available, I recommend you read the passages directly from it. It’s a great way to teach our children to treasure it.]
“…’She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.’ All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: ‘Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel’ (which means, God with us).”
God wants to be present in your life, he wants to be close to you even if you are not perfect and make mistakes or sin.
Thank you, God for wanting to be with us! Help us appreciate this gift. May your presence fill our hearts with joy! Help us respond in reverence and search for holiness. In Jesus’ name, amen.
