Max Lucado – Immanuel, God with Us

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

In Matthew 1:23, God called himself, “Immanuel”—which means, God with us!  Not just “God made us” or “God thinks about us.”  Not just “God above us.”  But God with us…God where we are.  He breathed our air and walked this earth. God. . .with. . .us!

Bethlehem was just the beginning.  Jesus has promised a repeat performance. Bethlehem, Act Two.  No silent night this time, however.  The skies will open, trumpets will blast, and a new kingdom will begin.  He will empty the tombs and melt the winter of death.  Death, you die!  Life, you reign!

The manger dares us to believe the best is yet to be.  I love Christmas because it reminds us how God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28).
