God With Us

God With Us

by

Matthew 1:23 reads, “A virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and they will call him, Emmanuel.” There are many names and nicknames for God found in the bible, and my favorite has long been “Emmanuel,” meaning “God with us.” The story of God starting in Genesis is like many different religions, with a powerful, distant god. But then God comes down into his creation, walking and talking in the garden with Adam and Eve. This is a different sort of god. This God is present with us.

I’ve had a number of times where my life has been turned upside down. Moving away from childhood friends. My mother passing away. Leaving a job I loved. And every time the only constant was the presence of Jesus. He is my comfort. He is with me.

Thank you for being with orphans around the world. Your investment in pastors helps them share the presence of Jesus in remote villages. Your empowerment not only helps people physically, but allows many to discover Emmanuel for the first time.

May we always be reminded that God is with us and never leaves us. And may we share this hope without reserve.
