Just a note:
For the next 3 weeks I will only be posting 3 X per week...
“Thankful Tuesday” and "Truth-filled Thursday”
will return in 2009!!!
God Bless!

“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

Immanuel means “God With Us”!
This conveys the idea that God came down to earth in fleshly form,
lived amongst us,
extended His love to humans in order to save and redeem us,
and give us eternal life with Him!

He is with us!
Scriptures tell us that He will never leave us nor forsake us!
He’s always there!
How comforting that is to me!

When I think about “God with us”
I also think of the Holy Spirit indwelling us
and us being “in Christ”.
I hope that’s not confusing!

When we turn our lives over to Him...
He saves us;
And the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in us!

1 John 4:4
“Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world.”

We become new creations when we are “in Christ”...
when we become “born again”.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new.”
2 Corinthians 5;17

This doesn’t mean we become like Him over night...
It is a process –
He dwells in us!
And He changes us!
I am so thankful for that!

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,
who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
Romans 8:1

Those who are “in Christ” are not condemned!
We are no longer under the sentence of the law –
we are empowered by the Spirit to live for Christ!

I pray this Christmas Season will find you reflecting on
“God with us”;
“Christ in us”;
And “us in Christ”...
And what this means to you and your Life “With and In Him”!
Praise Him and Thank Him for these truths!

Blessings of the season!
