“Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means “God is with us”.
The angel Gabriel was sent to speak to Mary about God’s plan for salvation and the coming of the saviour. The baby to be born was to be called Emmanuel … “God is with us”. How amazing that God came to earth in this way, and all because He loves us and wants us to be saved.
Each Christmas we remember and celebrate how You sent Your son Jesus to us here on earth. Help us to truly celebrate this, and not to get too caught up in presents, social arrangements and other things which take our minds off the true message of Christmas. Amen
